Need design of Beam

I have a remodel project that removes a wall that supports an exterior second story wall.

I need a beam that will span 24' to support this wall.

I have drawings if needed

Welcome to the forums! Of all the bad things that can happen with such an undertaking, it really would be best to invest in the services of a structural engineer to see if it is feasible, and what would be required to accomplish it. We are here, sight unseen, and it would be nearly impossible for us to give sound advice on it.

As Chandler said, too many variables and too much liability, have a structural engineer help you with both.

Also your local permit office will likely want to see plans signed off by an architect/engineer that they can contact if need be.
