weight bearing wall removal

In reply to load bearing walls by David on January 3rd, 2003 07:05 PM [Go to top of thread]

I would like to know if it is possible to remove part of a weight bearing wall in the bathroom to enlarge it? The wall I would like to remove is 7'- 3" would it have to be resupported some how? My next question is I would like to remove tow walls in the house both are on the same side but in different areas one is in front of the house that connects two bedrooms I would like to turn in to one. The other is the wall between kitchen and the diningroom. I would assume that I can do it if with putting a header up to support the load after the removal of the old wall. But I would like it if I didn't have too. Could you help me with a rough drawing to show how to, or just let me know something

thank you
