Semi open-plan kitchen - Need to knock down part of wall

Postby JohnFish » Thu Feb 28, 2008 4:01 pm


I live in a 2 bedroom terraced house where the bedrooms are located in the 1st floor and bathroom, kitchen and living room are in the ground floor. I am interested in knocking down part of a wall that separates the kitchen from the living room to get a semi open-plan kitchen. I just wanted to ask you whether I should support the structure with a pair of timber beams on each side or could i just go on and knock down the wall.
