OT:Not a roofing question


I know this isn't a roofing question,but it is a framing question.
My DW and I are planning a new home.She wants a rather large great room.My concern is that the second floor will be unsupported for some sixty feet(forgot to mention the house will be multi-story).
I am considering built up,glued and screwed,box beams.
Any suggestions?

I'm sorry ! what are you going to do with the box beams?? are you going to dress up the ceiling? or continue the floor line into the wall?.

Continue the floor line into the wall.This will be built truss fashion,and will serve as ceiling of first floor,and floor of second floor.
I'm just brain storming right now.I'm obviously not a builder,Just exploring my thoughts.

I moved your thread over here to the carpentry forum from the roofing forum in an effort to get you some assistance.
