Q:is it possible to remove the wood post from the garage and keep the posts upstairs?
A:Yes it is possible to remove the wood post in the double garage area.
The easiest way would be to slide the existing wood post in the garage area back to the staircase wall. Then locate the only loft post directly above the lower post and redesign the loft ridge beam size accordingly.

Q:Plan #76049 The concrete shown going up the side, is that part of the foundation? I can't seem to find anything about it in the notes. Also, why are there 6 x6 posts both below and above in the loft?
The original design location has a deep snow accumulation and the client wanted to protect his siding, hence the high concrete walls above grade.
The original design called for a rustic build so the client requested oversized heavy posts, floor support beams and heavy ridge beam all from rough sawn material.
If you wanted to eliminate all these features the design could be modified to incorporate engineered attic trusses which would clear span this width.
