In reply to Load Bearing Wall by Brian B. on January 17th, 2001 11:16 AM [Go to top of thread]

and determine the directions of the ceiling joists. The ceiling joists are the boards that the ceiling drywall is fastened to.

If the wall is parrellel to the joists, the wall is NOT loadbearing.

If the wall is perpendicular to the joists, the wall IS loadbearing.
