Front Porch Dilemma

last month

Our front porch has two different ceiling heights -9’ and 11’. It looks fine on paper, but I knew enough to question how the gap would be addressed and everyone (builder, supplier, architect, etc) told me it would be fine and a beam would handle it. Well now that it is time to actually finish the porch, they realize that the way the beam is situated in the images, it won’t meet code and the column would be short on one side. I’m a symmetrical person, I can’t have two different height columns or only one beam. How would you suggest we finish it out?

Note- We plan on square column. The plans haven’t been updated.
