I have had steels installed in my extension spanning 6m long. Have followed all structural engineers specs. And I have picked up a timber beam pretty cheap which I want to incorporate somewhere either directly below or besides it. Timber beam is 14" x 8" massive thing and is over 6m wide so has to be cut down. It is very heavy and wondering how I can hang it? I was thinking of building 2 pillars underneath each side of the beam and tie into existing walls. And sit the beam on to that. Someone has suggest to predrill a few holes in the steels and drill right through the beam (14") and get some kind of beams.. but I don't want to do this as this is bearing more weight onto the load which is already carrying a pitched roof, a new ridge beam and a rear dormer.
