removing a wall/purchasing and installing a kitchen island


Posted by DrJag on July 4th, 2000 09:28 AM

I have a galley kitchen with an adjoining dining room, and a wall separates them. A contractor told me the wall was not load bearing and that I could remove the wall if I wanted to, or alternatively, cut a hole in the wall and put in a countertop.

What I would like to do is remove the wall and put in an island, so the kitchen would have more storage, and the rooms would be larger.

My questions are:
Am I crazy to try and take the wall out by myself?

Can I buy an island that just needs to be assembled and attached to the floor? I don't need any electricity or plumbing in the island, I just want it for counter space and storage.

What should this job cost?

Thanks for any advice you have!
