Hi Everybody, New to the forum, I found it trying to search google for answers, but I have came up empty handed and hope someone can be of help. I am in the process of purchasing a new home and have some questions. Although I try to do most things myself, there is a couple of things I prefer having done professionally. The house is about 12 years old, and is a Modular home on a Full Basement which we believe to be a 12 course. All it needs to finish is drywall. However, I would like to do some framing first to make some spare rooms in the back. Currently, there are Jack Posts (That's we have always called them) Down the center of the basement. I would like to remove 3 or 4 of those to allow for more room in the larger area. First and foremost, is there anything I can do? Should I bother with it or just deal with it and put a full basement in the large addition I am planning on doing next year? My thoughts were that I could use the walls of my basement rooms as load bearing walls, or install beams as the house is not that wide. I believe it is only 30ftx50ft Approx. The basement is beautiful, with large windows and french doors and I would hate to have it ruined by the posts going down the center. Thanks!
