It's supporting the gable end, timber frame and 4inch block, it's giving us an open plan kitchen dinner with no middle supporting post. The beam is 9.5 metre long by 612x304 sitting on two 120x120 each end.
Trying to find a drawing of dpc window detail, just to check what I'm doing is right, also I have a 50mm cavity so has going to use 38x38 treated timber or should I be using insulated cavity closer then strapping windows inside

We moved our b and b beams which are 4.8 metres long, two seat belts as strops, put a loop in them, piece of 2x2 through loops, four people, and we moved them about 25 metres to the back of the house, over the foundations
