I want to open up a load bearing wall in my ground floor flat (built 1930's). I can do this on one side of the existing central door, but to the left is a angled wall about 800mm connecting this wall to the perpendicular wall. This angled wall then stops short of the ceiling? does anyone know what this is. There is a fire place on the perpendicular wall and i think next doors fireplace is behind the corner wall but i'm pretty sure it is not inside this wall[/list][/list]
hard to work out what you mean from the information you give. how far does it stop from the ceiling? possibly it's just a wall to add stability to the main wall. more info would help to solve your problem.
