Extending Bathroom - Wall removal


Postby vigalent » Sat Jan 12, 2013 5:31 pm

Hi all, just want a bit of advice. 1st time poster so go easy

We brought a 1970's bungalow and have removed the cylinder from the linen cupboard so as we can extend the bathroom into that space. The intention is to move the original doorway out further towards the hallway (as shown in the picture).

Given the original plan attached (and my notes on the roof trusses) I'm guessing there is no issue with removing the wall in the bathroom and taking out the old doorway to the linen cupboard (which has a small 4x2 wall plate above it)

vigalent,
You need to make sure that the wall is not load supporting.
Check there are no roof braces going down onto the top of the wall and that the trussed rafters are continuous over the wall. Also look to see if water tanks are fitted over this space.
Given this being OK you should not have any issues removing the wall.
