Can I smooth out this ceiling on this wall opening?
Hi, appreciate any views on the framing of this wall. (Pictures attached)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. Trying to see if the double plate (green marked line) can be taken out for a smooth ceiling. Thank you.
