when you have a 2 story house and obviously the joists can only span so far until you need vertical support. How is that usually constructed for a second floor? I supposed a flush beam and column on the second floor?
interior walls that transfer the load to corresponding interior walls on the first floor, the loads of which-all are picked up by a beam and columns over footings in the basement is what I see.
distributed and point loads eventually have to transfer to the footings.
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
