Is this load bearing


Hello,
I'm starting to reno my kitchen and was looking at removing the wall between the rooms for the whole open concept look.

My question is when I started to remove the ceiling I hit a part framed in 2x6 and was concerned that it was load bearing. It's right under a beam that all the joist connect to but the wall was put up after the ceiling so does that mean I can remove it?.

Re: Is this load bearing


Not likely to get an unqualified yes.....but if it was really load bearing it would have been at least a double on edge. Ron

Re: Is this load bearing


Can you post some pictures of what the rafters look like above the ceiling? That will give us a better idea what's going on there.

Re: Is this load bearing


95% not. But watch out, that 5% will get you.

There would probably be a header continuing off the end of the wall if it was.
And that sure isn't a beam above it.

What exactly is that piece above the wall?

The "beam" that runs across is 2 2by4's with 2 half inch pieces between with the metal edge to hold the ceiling panels in.
