Relocating a steel support pole in basement

Posted by Walter on January 9th, 1998 03:51 PM

There are a total of 3 poles in my basement that
support a beam that runs the length of my home
composed of 3 2x10s. Is there a way a DIYer can
relocate one or both outermost poles about 5 feet
toward the center of the house? Can I "sister" more
2x10s to the original beam and then resuppport the beam
with a new pole? I want to create a span of 15 feet
between the foundation wall and the steel post and hide
the pole in a new wall that will be located there.

Thanks for the input!
