I am remodeling my kitchen and want to remove a bearing wall and replace it with a support beam. Its an older home and its just not open at all. The current wall is running on the foundation and there are support studs in that run onto the foundation. I also know that will have to build 2 support walls before removing the the bearing wall.
My question is what type and size of beam would be adequate to put in as a header?
