    Hi, I'm working in the master bath and want to remove an old shower wall. There is a roof support approximately 58" from the corner of the outside wall stubbed with a 2x4 about 16" tall.

    IM001189.jpg & IM001192.jpg show the 2x4 support.
    IM001193.jpg shows the corner of the roof at the other end
    IM001194.jpg shows the stub wall of the old shower wall.

    I'm thinking that the only good way is to run a couple of 2x10x12 the length of the bathroom close to that support and run another support adjacent to it, but I'm not certain how much weight the support would carry being so close to the outside wall.

    I'd love to hear any comments from others that are more knowledegable than myself about such matters.

    Thanks a bunch!
