Q: I'm wanting to open a wall up in our upstairs room to make it a loft instead. I cannot tell if it's a load bearing wall, but assume it is.

What is the proper beam dimensions that I need to put up there if to make it up to code. The wall is about 12 feet long. Would 2 2x10's laminated together be strong enough to provide proper support?

I live in CA.
