I have an old 2 story home. Studs are 24 OC. A single story bedroom was attached to it and has a shed roof. I want to make a 48 inch wide opening I the wall to get access from the second floor. What size header do I need

If your house is old, studs are probably 2x4s. That wall is probably holding only the weight of the roof. Do you get much snow?
