Well it's been slow going mostly due to a family vacation to California/Nevada. Then I've just been slow getting back into the swing of things.
Couldn't get a call back from an engineer so I talked to zoning in town & they don't have an engineer. They just told me to consult a contractor. The contractor looked over my house & said that adding 2 2x8's would be sufficient but I looked & a couple of LVL's were only another 60.00 so I sprung for them just for the added piece of mind. The two greenish things are the LVL's joined together with trusslock screws.
