Removing a Load Bearing Wall

Depends what is above it.
Really need to talk to someone local about this.

Removing a Load Bearing Wall

having a chat with your local building dept. about what processes are in place, and what you will need to do- will probably be more beneficial than asking random people in an internet chat room if your beam is the right size.

Have you thought about your point loads? will proper support be in place down to the foundation? More to it than just throwing up a beam...

Removing a Load Bearing Wall

I did the work I mentioned above and all is well. I knew it would work, I just wanted some assurance from others, which I got from some and from some a discouraging word.
