Is this a load bearing wall?


Alright. I have this wall i'd like to get rid of, it separates kitchen from dining/living. We have some 2x10s spanning above the said wall. Few pictures attached. Also, confused on this big ugly support beam, i'm thinking i have a couple of directions going on in the ceiling here

I'm toward load bearing, but a structural engineer would be best either way.

Re: Is this a load bearing wall?


Your ceiling joists are on that wall, based on photo. So for now it is a load bearing wall. It also depends on how that wall is supported underneath. You have to open up more of the ceiling to see how those joists are supported and what is under the wall. The dropped ceiling (not the dropped box) suggests a substantial beam. Your joists could be hanging on those beams but, as always, eye inspection is only answer for anything more involved than window or door header.
