Hi everyone I am new to the forum and wanted to get some varying opinions on a beam size. I have a wall that is in the center of my house. The wall is framed out of 2x3 with 24" centers. Above the wall is 2x6 ceiling joists that are continues from outside walls and do not break on the wall. I want to remove a 16' section of the wall but the issue is that the wall is built out of 2x3 and lvl only comes either thicker or thinner than 2.5". The wall was put up after the ceiling was sheetrocked. Is this even a weight bearing wall? There is no foundation work in the crawl space for the wall. Any ideas?
