I have a traditional bungalow with stairs leading up to the attic between the living room and the kitchen. Both of the walls on either side of the stairs support the attic floor on each side.
I want to remove the part of the wall above the stairs so I have a diagonal opening between the living room and the kitchen.
1) First of all, can this be done?
2) If this can be done, how far apart can I put the supports and what size headers should I use for proper support?
