Hello I want to do a little remodel on my homes attic and have a question in regards to removing cross members and how to properly re support the roof in my home. I am not a student I am actually an electrician looking for a little structural advice. I have two cross beams that I would like to remove but I need to support the roof somehow. My main fear is cutting the supports and having the roof sag a little in that area. The roof is fairly well supported as it is and the beams I want to remove dont seem to be supporting a lot of weight I can take my hand and wiggle the beam a little in either direction. This is how my roof looks now. This is only about half of my roof just the area that I want to modify. The beam that I want to remove is seen in red. I would then take and add two 2x4s to the top and bottom of the beam as seen here in blue Then I would sandwich part of the red beam along with the blue beams with what is colored here in brown so that the order goes brown beam with blue/red in the middle then another brown beam on the other side so that I can cut away a part of the red beam so that it looks like this. Is this the best way to accomplish removing part of that beam or can someone recommend a better way to put new supports in place?
