Safe to remove wall?

Postby fabgav » Mon May 14, 2012 6:57 pm

Hi all, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, please move or advise if so.

Right, having read the excellent guide - ... _walls.htm
and using the table can someone confirm this for me please :)

My joist are spanning a gap of 2.8 mtr, 500mm wide and 1700mm tall.

Now the gaps between the joist are a little random, the largest being 280mm to the smallest being 190mm

From the table and the above information, I believe it is safe to take the walls below it down.

Any one care to advise??
