purlin supports/ Load bearing wall removal


I am removing a load bearing wall that is 85 in length. The ceiling joist run perpendicular to the wall, and I have an lvl beam running on to and perpendicular to the joists. I also have purlin supports that are in the wat by about an 1. What is the best and safest fix for this? Can I cut a 1 notch out of the supports? Do the supports have to be moved and fastened to the beam?

The wording is tough to follow. Have you removed the wall? Not sure what you mean by "What is the safest fix for this?"

Post a pic, I've removed some walls and would love to take a look.

-----------------------------Welcome to the forums!----------------------

Any struts have to terminate on top the beam, not the side, and in the same plane- without engineering. And strut angle cannot be less than a 45* so you may need to lower the upset beam below the ceiling and add a post/column; pp.95/105; http://www.ce.udel.edu/courses/CIEG4...%20-%20IBC.pdf
