I am looking for a bit of advice on knocking down one wall and making an archway in another wall.
I have already had a builder to come and give me a quote on doing it and he has told me that they are not supporting walls.
This is no problem for the wall im knocking down, but would like any tips on knocking it down anyway.
But the wall that im making an archway into i need somemore advice. Alough its not a supporting wall as ceiling joists run front to back (and so does the wall. I think that the wall may continue to upstairs. Directly above where i want to make an arch there is a doorway. Any suggestions on where i start and what i need please ????????
before knocking down a wall you did the MOST important thing making sure it is not a support wall. Next is to pull off the wall board or plater to gain access to electrical and such. Then the wiring, pluming, heating, and so on if in the wall will have to be rerouted or terminated. Then the wood is cut or dismantled for removal.
