Bearing walls? Please help!


I would like to tear down the two walls shown in the picture below. The wall to the right enters into the kitchen. I'm removing them because I would like an open concept (living room, dining and kitchen all open. My question is it possible? Ive included pictures of what's below the walls in the basement. Please help!!!

Going to need someone on site for this one. No one here can even guess how to do it without looking the whole house over.
Anything can be done if you have enough money.

An engineer would have to look it over design the layout and size the beams.
Then a contractor or in some cases you, can build it.
You will need permits for this.
