27524803 on Dec 13, 2017YOU don't.... You will need to consult a Structural Architect and they will determine IF the wall can be removed, HOW it can be removed, and WHAT it is to be replaced with... HomeAdvisor.com or AngiesList.com can put you in contact with a verified one...DO THIS FIRST... the structural integrity of your home is in jeopardy if you do not.Helpful Reply
William on Dec 13, 2017I agree with Marty. You will definitely need a Structural Engineer to properly size the header you will need. You can't just slap anything up there. You will also need to pull a permit, follow codes, and have it inspected. You are not only playing with the integrity of the home but your homeowners insurance, and local building and tax codes.Helpful Reply
