Require a structural engineering to provide report / stamp drawings for removal of interior walls in a 1959 single storey bungalow. This kitchen renovation will remove two interior walls to open the floor plan to the living room and dining area. The intent is to support the roof load with a steel column at the corner of the two existing walls.
Scope of work is to size the new beams, steel column, determine extent of revised load on basement framing. I will be applying for a building permit and will require stamped drawings.
Attached are images to help determine the extent of work.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Hello. I have a 1600 sq ft bungalow built in 1979. There were a few small issues with the teleports and the joists that were noticed by the home inspector that he recommended getting a professional to look at. We have been in the house for 3 months and have noticed some cracking a movement in walls that have been freshly painted since we moved in as well as doors that used to work that now stick. I would like to have someone that is VERY experienced at looking at structure and things like this to tell me if there are any minor things that can be done. The teleposts were not secured to the joists with lag bolts, just nails and the plate was too small for the beam. So that is one thing that has to be done.
I recently purchased a home built in 1975. According to the home inspection there are two structural issues that need to be addressed. First, the front eaves appears to be missing a support beam. There is a small section that juts out over the driveway that presumably once had a support beam below it. Second, the load bearing wall between the living room and dining room was partially removed and nothing was put in to replace the wall after it was removed. According to the home inspection, no structural problems appear to be present, despite last years heavy snow fall. The two areas obviously need to be thoroughly inspected and supports put in place as required.
Note: a cube van recently backed into the section of the eaves that juts out over the driveway. The damaged soffet and eaves were repaired, so I'm not sure what additional damage was done to the structure as a result of the collision.
House is 1220 square feet bungalow with a living room and bedroom at the front of the house. The front eaves extends about 4 feet from the house and runs about three-quarters of the house (the living room and front door section). The interior wall that was removed is approximately 12 feet long, with another approximately 12 feet still in place.
