Can I eliminate a floor supporting post under my cabin?
I am trying to make a room under my cabin and one of the floor support posts is in the way. It supports 2 x 6 floor joints that run from foundation to foundation. What I'm wondering is if I could run a 4 x 4 at right angles to the joints and create new floor supports at the end of the 4 x 4's. The span would be 10 to 12'. As long as the 4 x 4 didn't bend wouldn't this be sufficient?
