I'm struggling to determine if a wall is a load bearing wall or not. My house has no attic so how do i check if the joists run parallel or perpendicular to the wall in question? The wall is in a room in the dormer. Any help would be appreciated!

Have no idea what your saying.

Perhaps this free e-book will help you learn more about basic framing. Its 56 pages long, and you'll need adobe acrobat to view it (free on the web).

Hope this helps you:
