My home is ranch style 32’ wide by 80’ long slab construction. rafter built 4×12 pitch with asfalt shingles, with 2×6 celing joist with 2×6 rafters, the builder used a stiff-back at 8’ center and the load bering wall is at 16’. i would like to remove the load berring wall between the kitchen and living room. if i were to do this what is my best course of action? i have been in construction for 20 years but im questing the ability for a 4×12x15’6” will carry the span.
