    Default help..lally columns

    I want to replace a lally column in my basement. the columns are spaced about 5'5" apart and i want to take out the center column (of 3). My plan was to take 2 more columns and place them just inside of the 2 outer ones, on top of these columns I would put an 8x8 beam to span the 10' gap that existed. My main beam consists of 6 2 x 12's. I have lot of people telling me that leaving the 11 foot gap would be fine b/c of my existing beam, and that i dont have to put anything there at all, but i think just to be safe the 8x8 supported by the 2 columns will make up for the absence of the middle one i pull out. will my plan work?
