Proper load. Bearing header
Hi I have a room 20 x 10 with 9' ceiling. It use to be 2 10 x10 rooms with a bearing wall in the center now it has 2 6x6 beams spanning the 10' length I want to remove the 6x6 beams and bury a header so I need help in determining what size header to use. The rafters run the 20' this is a one story house with attic space and the room is located in the right hand corner of house

You need someone on site to look this over, no way someone 1000's of miles away should be even guessing on this one.

Please don't take any advice from us here.
You need a structural engineer to come look at it.
