Removing Archways

512 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Msradell
About 10 years ago when my house was built the going trend were archways in the interior of new homes. I liked them at the time but now I hate them. Is it hard to remove them and just make them straight? I'm guessing that above the archway there is framing but I'm not 100% sure. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have a total of 4 arch's and I'm thinking that there is a header over each one of them. Would using a stud finder be able to tell me for sure if the header is there above the arch? If I knew how to post pics I would to get a better idea of what I'm talking about.
It's possible that a stud finder could determine what's up there but it's also quite possible it couldn't, it all depends on how it was framed.
