In almost all cases

In reply to loadbearing wall? by kristina on November 3rd, 2002 06:26 PM [Go to top of thread]

a load bearing wall runs perpendicular to the floor joists. Therefore, the floor joists are bearing the load. If parallel, then they are not load bearing just partitions.

This is the rule of thumb, but there are exceptions.
