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.
