    Hi everyone just wondering what peoples thoughts are about this wall. We will get someone in to check before removal but would just like idea if we would need a steel putting in. We are taking out the area marked in red, we believe that this is possibly not a load bearing wall. About 2ft into the kitchen there is a steel supporting the wall above which is outside bedroom wall of our property. The wall we want to remove does not have a wall above it and the joists run parallel with the wall and steel it has a depth of 130mm are we right in thinking that the wall we want to remove is not load bearing. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Doesn't look load bearing but the final test is cut a patch out of the ceiling and look into the void above the wall. If there's nothing bearing on it for its entire length then you can get the sledgehammer out.
