Hi,

I'm starting to open up our laundry room but figured I should double check if there is any possibility this one area (highlighted in red below) could be load bearing?

I tried to show exactly where it is when viewing from the basement, hope that helps.

Thanks!

In my non engineering opinion it is not clear cut. With that triple stud in the corner and the two close together joists in the basement it could be bearing some sort of load.

Load bearing beams are nailed together, closes don't count.

And that is a standard corner, load bearing or non load bearing. :biggrin2:

Whether a wall or post is load bearing is not determined by what it bears on, but what bears of it. IOW, you need to look at how the ceiling of that room is supported and whether the support for that part of the roof(?) is different than other portions of the system.
