That would be a structural beam, you should consult with a structural engineer. All of the loads from the roof on down will rest on a basement beam typically.

.. by the way, those 2-2X10 "beams" you've placed are extremely undersized in my humble opinion so I would talk to a professional rather quickly.

If you look at my deck site, and beams suggested just to hold up a mere 40lbs / sq ft dead load for a deck they would be undersized.. and that doesn't have the house sitting on top of it.
