I have recently purchased a rustic cabin with a Mono? Type roof Right in the middle of the LR ceiling is a beam (actually it is 2 12' beams that meet in the center of the ceiling.)2' of each beam extends out to the underside of the roof. The cabin was built about 15 years ago. This is not a support beam and I am thinking over time the beams started sagging so they did a sister type support and put a hole in the floor and ran a rustic beam from the floor up to the beam. Well, now that I have either thoroughly confused you or bored you. My question is How can I repair the sag where the beams meet plus remove that unattractive beam on the floor but make sure this beam will be properly supported? I thought of some sort of truss but this is a 600 sf room with sloping walls and I am just not sure what to do. I will attach a photo if possible for you to see what it looks like. Any suggestions or web references would be greatly appreciated.
