Tele-posts vs. Load Bearing Wall

Posted by Trevor Fikkert on March 5th, 2001 12:03 PM

We are currently looking at purchasing a new home. The only concern we have identified is that there are no teleposts in the un finnished basement. Instead there is a 2x6 load-bearing wall under a double 2x12 beam running the length of the house. The upper floor is built on 12" engineered floor trusses which rest on the beam. The soil base is sand in that area with good drainage away from the foundation. House is only 4 mos old. Are there inherrent problems assoc. with a load-bearing wall vs. teleposts in this situation?
