Adding a porch to the front of my barn I want to use two 2x6 together rather than the 2x10 my builder recommends (I need the extra headroom). The span of the header is ten feet. What problems will I have from such a method?

THANKS!!!

To Jim:
You should not have a problem with using the smaller wider header I would recommend that use a 4x6 not two 2x6's it will look better if you can see it when you do too.
codecheck.com has good info on building.
