Very Carefully

In reply to tearing out a wall where the ceiling joists are perpendicular by Jean Corwin on January 6th, 2003 08:59 AM [Go to top of thread]

You have a load bearing wall there. Tearing out the wall would probably cause the ceiling to collapse. It must be braced properly.

If you are not an expert, it would be wise to have an archetect or structural engineer inspect it and give you advise.
