steel beam to support floor in bonas room over garage


Posted by Kyle gilbertson on March 28th, 2003 07:07 PM

I am adding a garage on to my house. The only problem I have run into is how to support the floor over the garage. It is 24'x24' with a 12/12 pitch roof. The bonas room floor should have a 40psf rating and seismic is area B. I would like to run a steel beam down the center of the garage ceiling to support thinner floor joists, saving space and from the prices I have seen for steel and 2"x14"x24'lumber, quite a bit of cash.
