Uh-Oh. Found a Beam in wall during demo
I might curse.
Demo began yesterday, and the wall that everyone thought was non load bearing due to ceiling joists and existing beams has a structural post in it. There is a ceiling beam shown on this drawing; there is another one that forms a cross with it to the left to wall "B".
So we go back to the drawing board. Lukcily, the cabs I purchased are Ikea. Also exploring doing custom, have that gentleman coming back on Friday. So nothing done that can't be undone.
Beam is circled in blue.
I'm thinking the best way to incorporate it is to either anchor it on island, or to enclose it in a laundry/pantry.
ETA: It's a post. Not a beam. Doh.
