Ok I am going to do my best to explain my project
Notes: 1 story house - 1400 sq ft, 15x7 kitchen, 14x9 room next to kitchen, load bearing wall in between, 8 ft 2x8's above kitchen to load bearing wall, 10 ft 2x8's above room, both 2x8's overlap on the load bearing wall separating the two rooms.
I want the wall to come down. I work for a guy who used to build houses and his idea is as follows: take a 2x8 and create a flush side beam (if you looked at it from underneath you would see three 2x8's) then take a 2x10x16 and span the whole distance of the kitchen and the room (now you will have, from looking underneath, a 2x10x16 - spanning the whole room, 2 2x8's flush with the 2x10 (one old and one new), and the other original 2x8 - which ill just leave there). Now this will be a lot more work and probably overkill then just adding a header but i want the ceiling to flush. My question is, does this seem like it will be ok. I know there are a lot of variables that i could be missing but from the information given does it seem like it will be structurally sound?
