Removal of Floor Support Beam

Posted by Ray on January 1st, 2002 12:58 AM

I am redoing the basement in my raised ranch and have a support post in the middle of a 12' wide room. It is supporting a joint in three 2x8s. I want to remove the post to open the room, but wonder what the best way is to support the floor. Can steel plates be run along the beams (both sides) to replace the post and do they need to run all the way to the walls?
