Help! Been in my house for 6 months now, guy that owned it before knocked out a supporting wall down stairs to open it up, stuck an RSJ in to support wall above, BUT he's put one rsj full width of the house, but hes sat it on another RSJ thats sitting on both the chimney stacks! Making both chimney stacks redundant, and I want a fire!

then you will need to support the RSJ sat on the one running between the chimneys, you need a structural engineer to design a pier for you, but this may involve digging a foundation.
