Definitely talk to bc rep or architect. Steel is a commodity, I'm in nj and last year I purchased a 24' steel w beam 12"height with drilling for bolt holes for about$3,000.

Since it isn't needed to be loaded bearing you could use something smaller, but ask an architect to spec it. You could possibly get away with a simple flitch plate and double lumber, through bolted, as small as 4 or 6"

Glue and structural screws are superior to glue and nail, which is superior to nail alone.
