Garage entry door framing
There is a 2x10 beam that is perpendicular to the studs, which I am assuming is structural. Would anyone know what this is for? For reference, I have a 2 story house, the family room is above the garage but in between the main and second floor. Right above where we want to place the garage entry door is the stair case and pathway to the family room.
My neighbour, who has the same house style has a garage entry in the same place, so I know it is doable. If anybody has a contractor who has done this with permits, please let me know. I am in the Durham region.
