How much do engineers charge?

I'm wanting to remove a load bearing wall to open up the kitchen, formal LR, den and dining room into one big great room. I am looking to install a 38' beam to eliminate the center wall. Does anyone have examples of the cost to do similar calculations by an engineer for beam sizing and to pass permit requirements?

It's doubtful anyone on the forum could estimate such a local item. It is always best to seek out local pricing before delving into such an adventure.

The cost is highly dependent on your location and the work that needs to be done for your project. Very roughly though I keep the $500 number in the back of my head for most smallish projects.
