RSJ not needed, according to the builder-

last month

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is fine and everyone is having a nice Sunday in the sun.

As you may know, the builder has taken down the wall, between the kitchen and diner to create an open plan kitchen.

As per the building and structural survery, both advised that an RSJ be installed. My builder even sourced it.

He now says it’s not needed. That instead, it will be used to support the door frame. Between the dining and sun room. As this sliding door is to make way for a bifold one.

I am now a lil preplexed. Is it not needed? Jonathan in the past did mention that it’s strictly not needed but I would feel better if I over engineered the house

Pleaae do advise
