Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I would like to take out a 10 ft section of interior supporting wall. I am curious what size beam I will need? Right now, there is normal size walkway through the wall. The kitchen on one side of wall is 14x14 and other room on other side is also 14x14. The wall I'm trying to remove is on main floor. There is a full basement below. In the basement, right below wall I'd like to remove, is what appears to be an i-beam. There is also a second floor above the wall that has a bathroom and bedroom above it. And the roof above that. I live in Chambersburg, Pa.

There is a lot on youtube about this. Also you should be aware that this requires a building permit.

Need to span a LVL beam 14ft. with only 2x6 joists to carry and no other loads on a interior wall< so I can open up a wall


Hi Dave:
Cars & trucks section so you may not get many answers.
I'm a retired Building Inspector so have a general idea of what you are talking about.
There are several variables that come into consideration.....
- Supported joist length
- Load on those joists
- You'll find the required beam size in the appropriate tables.
Your local Building Inspector should be able to assist you.
Cheers

I need to replace microwave and don't know what size in cubic feet?


Multiply interior's height x width x depth. Ex: lets say 10 inches x 12 inches x 8 inches = 10 x 12 = 120 x 8 = 960. Divide 960 by 1728 (12 x 12 x 12) =. 56 cubic ft( point 56) just a tad more then half cubic ft.

I want to frame a closet do I just need 2by4's or should I use 2by6's


Framing lumber for interior non-load bearing walls is typically 2x4 in house construction. Even load bearing interior walls often only require 2x4 framing, but could require 2x6 framing depending on the load they carry(the load is how much weight of the roof or upper floors is being supported by the wall). Sometimes 2x6 framing is used for interior walls that have plumbing drain pipes to make it easier to fit them, likewise if the interior wall has heat/air ducting in it. Another reason to use 2x6 is to allow better sound proofing or higher insulation rating. If none of the special cases I've cited apply, then 2x4 is what I would use to frame a closet.

How do i adjust my headlingt on a 2001 suzuki xl7


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Supporting a load bearing wall


The floor/roof loads above will be a bigger unknown than the ceiling itself. The wall MAY be replacable with properly sized beam/column combinations but you will need to have a design professional look for adauate footing size, calculate floor loads (and roof loads if any), and size the beam/column system to support ALL of the loads now carried by the wall. If you have access to the origional floor and roof framing plans they will be a great help, otherwise someone will need to do some investigating to make thoes design judgements.
In 23 years working as a building inspector I'v seen way too many structural problems caused by inadaquate beam installations, Its worth the time and money to do it right.
Good Luck.
