Hi Maryam,

This sounds like a pretty big project. Do you have a contractor helping you?

I would recommend you contact a Design Builder to plan and cost the job. In order to install a structural beam, you must temporarily support the load. This is not a "Do-it Yourself" kind of job. Better to hire the professionals.

Good luck with your project.
