Load bearing wall removal
Just bought a townhouse and planning my renovations. Closing date is in a few weeks. I am planning on taking down a load bearing wall separating the kitchen from dining room. I hear this open concept thing is all the rage nowadays Because my home is in a condo board, I will be securing all the necessary permits and doing all work to code, for the city of Markham.
I was hoping someone could help me out with the procedure here, I'm a bit confused as to how it's all going to work. I know I will need engineered drawings, just not sure in what order it all gets done. And exactly how detailed these drawings need to be.
It is a 12' wall on the main floor and will probably be supported by an LVL beam once it's removed. Have a contractor friend who will be helping me do the work
