Now hear me out first, I did have a contractor tell me it's not a load bearing wall. We have a 1 story home & the attic is no more than just spray in insulation. The wall I want to cut down 3/4 of the way from ceiling to floor is next to the front door. It separates the 50's kitchen from the front room, has a closet next to the door & another cabinet/pantry on the side going into the small kitchen. I just would like to hear anything about knocking it all out except for leaving about a 4 foot divider/bar. Like mentioned earlier, was told the wall is not load bearing by a contractor, I didn't think it was & still I'm a little weary. Maybe just flat out paranoid. LOL
Pretty simple actually. Get up in the attic and find the wall. Are there any joists or bracing on it? If no, knock it out. If there is bracing only, you'll have to move it if possible. It might also be impossible to move it.
