I am in need of some advise, can anyone help. I built a house 2yrs ago, and I am planing to finishing my basement. I have one area that i would like to remove a post. Heres what it looks like now 19ft I beam, one end sits on foundation the other end on a post, and the 3rd post is about 4ft from the end post, this is the one I want removed. I have 2x12 floor joints that meat on top of the I beam. I was thinking I could put new I beams on either side of the one and post at either end. I would really like to find a pro for this job. My builder is know longer around.
