We recently purchased a 1934 1.5 story house with a refinished attic master bedroom. The entryway to the stairs leading up to the attic from the main floor hall is framed by an old door frame. The main problem we're having now is that we cannot get our queen size box spring up to the attic. Our thought is to remove the door frame to give us the few inches we need for clearance and then eventually change that entryway to an archway leading up to the attic. Do you suppose this is a structural frame and shouldn't be removed? If not, any instructions on how to remove it? Thanks!

First, a door frame wouldn't be structal however the opening it goes into could be.
If removing the door frame gives you the clearance you need your OK.
If your only basis for this is getting a queen size bed up the stairs, you might consider either a larger window in the attic with removable sashes or going to a king size bed where the box springs are 2 full size box springs.
Remember, what goes up, must come down.
My thoughts.
