(Stu, you might want to avert your eyes from this... )
I'm doing some pie-in-the-sky dreaming about expanding my basement shop to take over a neighbouring room. More space is always good, and adding a 9x13 bit of space to my shop would seem like luxury. (I told you not to look, Stu!)
But the challenge (I won't say problem!) is that there are two teleposts inside the non-structural wall that I would be ripping down to gain this space. One of those posts is pretty close to a corner, so I don't see it as being any sort of a problem at all. The other post is far from the outer wall, about 64" in. There is a gap between the two poles of about 80". And no, I don't really want to entertain thoughts of moving the post!

On the angle:
And looking the other way:
