Can u please provide me with some tips for the (hopeful) removal of this bulkhead? The house is 38 yrs and the walls are plaster. If I were to begin breaking it down, what are some challenges I may encounter? Is this a fairly straight forward procedure? On a scale of 1 to 5, how difficult would you say this project is - 5 being the most difficult.

You didn't what is inside this bulkhead.
If, for example, it contains the main air duct that carries air from the heating system to the rest of the house, then removing it would "kill" your heating system.

Thanks for the comment, however part of my question asked about what type of problems I may encounter if I were to attempt to break it down, being that I have no plans for the house. I don't believe that it's part of the heating system as there are no vents coming from this bulk head (but not sure if that's a correct assumption or not?). What are some things I should look for or try to search out before I attempt to break into this bulkhead?
