I have a vaulted ceiling in my 1986 Brigadiar double wide. There is a beam in the center of the ceiling. I removed all the paneling from the beam and it is actually two (2) miniature structures made out of (2 X 3)s?
It seems to be held up by the ceiling rather than holding the ceiling up. Does anyone know if it is safe to remove this structure? Or at least if it can be removed long enough to replace it with something that can be made to look presentable?
