Ok so here we go. I am remodeling a kitchen. I have been framing for 15 years. However I just can't wrap my head around this situation. I have a wall that needs removal. The customer wants an open floor plan. The situation is the wall is 14' and needs to be replaced with a header. It is not the center bearing wall. However it runs against the second story joists. So is it bearing or is it simply bracing. If its bearing what is your thoughts on header widths. Was thinking 2 ply with a flitch
