I have a kithchen with an 8 ft. original ceiling. There was an addition
made at some point adjacent to the kitchen but the ceiling of the
addition is about a foot lower, although there is an old ceiling above
that that looks like it was also 8ft.
I'd like to remove about a 3.5 ft piece of wall between the kitchen and
this addition to open things up.
Is it a safe bet that the actual supporting beam is where the wall
meets the original 8ft ceiling and not where the lower ceiling is and I
can therefore remove this piece of wall without having to put in a
supporting beam in this supporting wall?
Any thoughts, comments and/or advice appreciated greatly.
