    Partial load bearing stud?

    You have confirmed my exact thoughts I can't see any load been put onto the stud via 3 noggins when you have actual joists a few cm away and with no walls on the joists either side of the noggins/stud their shouldn't be any load down and the load from the trimmer joists will be distributed to...

The stud...

    Partial load bearing stud?

    Hi, I'm 99 percent sure this wall has no load on it but wanted to see if it was obvious before I took it down or if I should get someone in to check. This stud runs parallel with the joists and is screwed into noggins not the actual joists. Originally I thought the bathroom wall which also...

    Are my stairs no longer held up?

    You can fit a screwdriver under the newel so it's not sitting on the joist, I asked around and it's reckoned the newel is tied into the bull nose edge. It's not fallen down yet anyway and doesn't appear to be moving haha I have but wooden spacers in the gap and tied the newel to the joist...

    Are my stairs no longer held up?

    The newel is loose but the stairs don't seem to be moving but I can't work out what the stairs are attached too at the top except the stringer attached to the wall so the none wall side is only secure at the bottom to the bottom newel by dowels. The stringers appear to stop before the joists on...

    Are my stairs no longer held up?

    Hi, I could probably do that or I was also thinking put a big piece of wood in the length of the wall tied into the wall and bolt it to that then dry line it all. The dwarf wall wasn't really touching the stringer it wasnt resting in any of the bricks. It's not imminently dangerous then?

    Are my stairs no longer held up?

    I always thought the newel posts were load bearing which is why I got a bit of a oh bugger moment. I thought the landing newel was supposed to be tied into a joist to help take the load on the side not attached to the wall but the more I read the more I realised its the bottom newel which is the...

    Are my stairs no longer held up?

    Hi all, Got told the little wall under my stairs was not structural so took it out it was from the bottom newel to about halfway then a door. Anyway took it down took the bannister off etc noticed the landing newel was wobbly so thought I'd investigate. Turns out this newel isn't attached to...
