Im removing a knee wall. It has a beam built out 2 2x4s going to the vaulted ceiling. There is small attic space. One of the 2x4s is connected to side of a ceiling joicst and the other one isnt nailed in to ceiling at all. But there is extra boards up there in the joicsts that look like they are just part of the attic floor..Not sure......Does it sound like the beam is supporting anything?????

Really need a picture.
How do you know this was not part of the roof system designed to help support the roof?

use paint or some free software to shrink the image size down to 1024x768 (or something like that).

then upload the imageshack.us (free) and post the link here

Nope. Try standing back say about 10 feet and then taking the picture. You aren't trying to take a picture of a Bee or Fly on a flower. You are trying to give people an idea of what you are seeing when looking at what you are trying to explain, what is the problem.

do you have any pictures from the attic?

what was there before? an empty wall?

Were there any other studs that you removed prior to taking these pix?

based on your pictures, it does not look like a load bearing 2x4.

I say take it down. Looks like it was done after the build. BTW, that is not a knee wall, it is just a separating wall between rooms.
