Framing Question


I am getting ready to do an addition on our house. I will be removing a load bearing wall. Can I install 2x6x24' across the span of the room if I marry the 2x6's to the existing 2x4 rafters. My current rafters are on 24" centers and I will be making them 16" centers, or do I need to install a header where the existing load bearing wall is?

Re: Framing Question


So far we have no pictures, no idea where you are since there's no location mentioned in your profile.
No idea what's above this area.
All this should have have been run though your local zoning dept. permitted and inspected.

Re: Framing Question


I don't have any pictures to post at this time. I don't have a local zoning department as I am outside the city limits. I didn't know that I needed to post my location. I am in Joplin Mo. This is an exterior wall with nothing above, current truss system is on 24" centers.
