Re: Moving Support Columns
I cant believe that some of you gave advice to Ritu.
Are you some of you, some kind of an inspector or a major goof ball I aint herd of yet!!!? DONT Ever remove or try to redirect the weight on your load bearing pillars.
They are there for a reason. I have never seen any worker in my time even attempt or bid on something as outrageous as removing load bearing supports.
Wife need's a physics lesson man!
These are right under your load wall's upstairs. I dont know if you have a ranch or an upstairs or not, but you ought to tell wife to just deal with it!!!
I have boxed them out and built wall's incorporating them. But never remove.
If you do good luck on selling you house some day.
Be safe out there folks
