Help Identifying Beam is in my Attic for Small Loft Conversion


Postby GezLlewelyn » Mon Apr 24, 2017 9:03 pm

Hi there,

Considering a very basic attic converstion to provide some space for me to work. Its a partially boarded area, i am planning to insulate and board the rest of the floor and plywood and insulated the roof wall - thats it.

However, there is a large beam running the width of the room and i wanted to know what is was for, and if i wanted to remove it, what could i replace it with (i assume its supportive?)

Any information would really help!
