Hello, First I love this Website, Makes owning a home, even though I cant afford it, worthwhile.
I am going to tear down as much wall space as possible to open the floor plan, and make the living space work better.
The Double King Studs on the left are almost directly above the first Lally in the basement, holding a triple 2x10. When I change this wall to two 2x91/2 LVL's I want to make sure that I have a good support under the subfloor. So, If I build up the triple 2x10 in the basement with triple 2x6 cripples, directly under the Double Jack Studs...I should be Ok ..
? Wasnt sure about the floor plate ( 2x4 ) spaning the plywood subfloor
16", the two floor joists underneath or build a triple jack from the girder up flush to the underside of the Subfloor.
