I want to set up my HT in my basement. The basement is 24' x 24' . My problem is this: There are 2 metal poles (load bearing) that support the upstairs floor joist. These poles divide the basement in half. I know they have to be there, but is there anyway to relocate them a few feet over, so I can get the room size I want? Maybe with steel plates or steel I beams or something else? I will not be doing this part of it, but I wanted to know if it could be done. I will be doing the walls, and I did not want the poles inside the room. I am not a structural engineer, so I did not know if this was even possible. Has anyone else ran into this problem?
