From the little bit of searching I did I see Lally columns are rated around 14,000 lbs. They
figure the weight of single story structures between 50 and 200 lbs per sq ft. So let’s
guess in the ...

Is there tin ductwork behind the grill?

Fair enough...then in that circumstance I wouldn't recommend he work under there at all; and
should shore it up soundly from the outside first. I agree. I understand photography pretty
