I am a looking to remove a load bearing wall carrying the attic space floor joist ,
it is essentially a crawl space attic, just hvac and duct work
the joist are 2x6 splice over the 2x4 load wall and then another continuous run has a header in the attic a 2x12 resting on the corner post and perimeter wall carrying 2x8 toe nailed
My question is i want to replace all with a 3x12 LVL by Louisianna pacific
run it from the perimeter walls to a load beaing post carried through to the cellar.
Can i use teco hanger and nail into the side of this LVL and where would i find the load bearing capacity.
