I have a split level home. The main level has an interior wall which runs parallel to the floor joists. Above this room are trusses which are supported on the exterior walls. The trusses span 36 feet. Could there be a center load on this wall?

Yes, possibly.... an attic picture would help identify a point load on the truss with a label, ink stamp or web chord.

Generally, trusses do not require center support, but as suggested, a pic of the truss design would help. And the wall does not seem to have support under. A load bearing wall will have support under in the form of double joists, beam, etc. My guess is not load bearing.

I have a similar issue.

Here are some pictures. The wall I took out runs parallel to the trusses.

I would like to extend the opening from the kitchen.
I would also like to shorten the red wall that separates the hallway from the living room.


Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
