Load bearing wall removal


The hangers I've got are about 17 1/2" long, so I'll have about 2 1/2" at the top that will fold over the top of the LVL beam.

Thanks!

Do you typically use any kind of end cap/post cap to secure the end of the beam to the joists? Seems like this might be overkill, and I haven't seen anything that looks like it would really work, anyway.

You could use a strap to help keep it from rolling, but probably not needed with 2x4 on each side.
