How to beam question
We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen. We are taking a short section of wall out, maybe 8 feet. U want to put a supporting beam in its place. It needs to be rugged but it will also be exposed. I am not sure what how to do this and make it look good. Should I use 2 x 8 and then cover it with pine and paint?
I really need some suggestions if you have any.
