One of the coolest parts of this job is transforming small rooms into larger spaces. Load bearing walls hold a lot of homeowners back from opening up spaces but usually, adding a beam can fix that. Here are a few pictures of the beam we put in earlier this week.
She’s such a beauty! 😉
But in all seriousness, it’s extremely important to consult an engineer before starting a major project like this. Ensuring the beam is the proper size and has proper placement is required, and unfortunately not all load-bearing walls can be replaced by a beam. But if you can open up any space in your home, I highly recommend doing so!
