Basically I'd run LVL support perpindicular to the 2x's at the mid point
That I think is what Gary said also
So determine where that would be on each wall & let us know (pics) if there is anything on either wall that would prevent that

Those pictures are scary! I would remove the plywood and any load from above, right away. One AC wire is being pinch from the plywood above. The garage car door back-hang track is loading 50-100# on the individual ceiling joist it is hung from. I'm surprised it hasn't failed yet. To add #1 sisters next to each would require jacking the old (nearly impossible) joists and sistering. Easier would be the beam below, lifting 3/4 at a time (86#), alone . Lift one end onto a sawhorse, then ladder, then beam pocket, other end similar but onto movable double trimmer studs. OR, you could build your own beam with 2x4's and plywood, 25', 60# per ft.load, weighs 6# per foot: called "Nailed Structural Use Panel & lumber beams- Z-416, free pdf: http://www.apawood.org/level_c.cfm?c...ub_ply_libmain

Be safe, Gary

Curious. What are you folks recommending he do for supporting the ends of this new beam? Sooner or later, it sounds like someone needs to address what is holding the beam up, and what is holding up what is holding the beam; posts and foundation below them. Or, did I miss something?

Whoops! My first two posts I said check with your B.D., forgot on this one, sorry.
He hasn't decided to sister or not, beam or not, or home-made trusses, with the approval of the Inspector for the correct wood rating, fasteners, loads, etc.: http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...6fTirapfPwoKzA
I though we were in the idea mode, discussing options before posts, footings, sistering bolting, lateral rotation (blocking), etc., good point to keep in mind for later, though.

Be safe, Gary
