This basically is a decorative ornamental item not meant to be used for or as a structural load-bearing support column(s). For the proper sized "decorative" structural load-bearing support column(s) you must contact a structural engineer and/or architect for the right design requirements needed for your porch, then seek out an ornamental iron-works/structural steel fabricator welding shop to fabricate the decorative ornamental columns you need with the proper wall thickness as required to support your porch's weight.
The crossbar is approximately 9" from the bottom. It is not recommended to cut more than 8 inches from the bottom of the column. Please call Master Flow Technical Services at 800-211-9612, M-F 8A-5P EDT, for any additional questions.
