A simple defination is

In reply to Load Bearing Walls by Joe In Sonoma on December 12th, 2002 06:14 PM [Go to top of thread]

if the wall is perpendicular to the roof or ceiling rafters, its bearing the load of that set of rafters because rafters are going over it for support.

But there are some small amount of exceptions, for example if you have a long hall way that is load bearing, and right beside that hall are some bathroom short walls that are perpendicular to the rafters, its not necessary a load bearing, because of the main load bearing wall is the hall way only two or three feet away.
