Is this Load Bearing Wall


I didnt have time today to do more demo, but I went to condo above me and below me to check if they have walls on same place and answer is no.
Also I looked into the beam that is running parallel to the wall, it is timber dimensions 7"x7".

I will be gone for couple days and when I come back I will open ceiling and try to find structural engineer to come and take a look.

The building plans should be on file at the local office, whoever does that is in your area. You might be able to look at those to find the answer.
