Forum Title: Cantilever Room
Customer wants to extend one side of their 12' wide kitchen out either 2' or 4'. It is a 2 story home with a walk-out basement below the kitchen. I want to just bump out the kitchen, not the bedroom above or the room below. I would just put a shed type roof on the bump out. My question is: can I cantilever out either 2' or 4' with floor joists? They have existing 2x10 joists and I could remove sheetrock in room below and tie back in (is it 2x or 3x of cantilever?). Maybe joists on 12 centers? We do A LOT of remodeling but seldom get into structual changes. Thanks
