This beautiful home built around 1912 had a small closed up kitchen. As most homes did in that time period. Our project was to remove the stairway to expand kitchen space. If you take a look at the picture below, see that door in the middle of the photo? That is what is was removed. Since this is a major load bearing wall it required an Engineer.
Walls in old homes can have all kinds of surprises. Since you don’t really know till you demo where all the pipes may be located.
