    Basically, an opening, double plated, with loads on each ends. Couple notes:

    +There is nothing (loads) in between the two ends (green line).
    +The left side does have beam on top. The beam supports the joists for the bedroom above.

    Had done a lot of research online, but nothing can address this well. Trying to see if the double plate (green marked line) can be taken out for a smooth ceiling. Thank you.

    Hi,
    there's a yellow line but no green lines.

    however,
    no, you can't remove the top plate or the double plate.
    that wall was raised with the double plates tiying-in the supporting "posts" on the right - in turn, the "posts" are supporting the 1, 2, 3 beam thats carrying bedroom floor joists and studding.

    dont remove any of the studs either side of the opening.
