Married wall


Hi all, I was wondering if I can get some advise on my center wall.
I own a 1978 double wide and I'm planning on remodeling my kitchen and front living room. I want to take down the center married wall that divides my kitchen and living room, however I'm not sure if it would be safe to do so or at lease a part of it.
Could I add a header at the center of the roof and brace it on each ends with 2x4 or 4x4???

Thank you for any advice..

Re: Married wall


This is the center wall I want to take down.
I have read on a site that is not a good idea to take down a married wall but also was told in some cases you can...

Re: Married wall


I would place a call to the manufacturer of the double wide and speak to them.

Yeah I tried to find the manufacturer on the internet and at city hall but with no luck.
