Is it ok to frame a wall under my main beam in my basement? (details inside)


Hi!I’m looking to frame up a little room in my basement. Where I would prefer to put a wall and door is directly in line with the main beam in my house. The wall/door would span between the foundation wall and two support columns. I can’t seem to find online if this is acceptable to do.Please see this image.I would use the beam as the header for a 28″ pocket door between the 5’2″ span between the foundation and first column. Then frame normally 2×6 studs 16″ between the 6’4″ columns. Perpendicular to the end of that, I will make a normal 2×4 wall.Does this make sense? It is allowed?Thanks! via /r/DIY
