In honor of trapped miners and failed Interstate bridges, get some heavy posts under those beams. You are worth more than the money you are saving on that woeful support system in place. 2x4's are not enough, unless there are 50 of them, and they are supporting loads individually.

Please Please....

granted, you removed an ugly mess, but if it were me, I would have considered a new fireplace design. now you're left with an awkward space to design around.

This is going to come off arrogant...
I see people buy tools or material at Home Depot that they have no right being close to much less owning, watching them tie their proud new purchase on the top of a soccer limo with twine furthers my opinion.
For many items they should require a license.
Photos in this post give me a burning sensation in the groin.

I like SDR's idea - have a metal, boxed frame welded to fit a skylight opening that would straddle the two ceiling beams. The two beams would be forced into supports that extend to each side and be through-bolted (the frame would transfer the load across its lenght. Would still check with a structural engineer though.

Don't think I'd be happy to see the load carried around the perimeter of a frame, myself -- as slick as that would certainly be. But. . .

I like MRU's idea ! :roll:

personally, i would only feel comfortable with a re-built fireplace. :)
makes me never wanting to be a forth owner. 'what did the other three do!?'

but seriously, in this situation, some local advice must have been involved. wonky maybe, but that is not sane
really, without a future plan.
i'm too lazy to check, but i think a permanent post was planned for the future?

Naw, the four 2x4's will do just fine.
Can someone get this guys phone or address and find out what the heck he ended up doing, the suspense is killing me.

Yeah, it's a little worrisome -- though I trust those temporary supports to do the job, short of a major snow load.

Maybe they just walked away from it ?

Can a building inspector make a citizen's arrest ?
