I have a pantry door frame that runs under a load bearing beam. I want to know if it can be removed without affecting structure. Pictures attached.
Your request is not clear? but yes any removal under a load bearing structure is affected. If total removal of door/walls you "must" install a "beam" to code & properly supported. If re-walling the opening then no, just frame in with new studs.
Ok, thanks for the reply John, sorry my post isn't very clear. I'm not a contractor so I'm just guessing here. On the new attached photo is it possible to remove the door frame wall but leave the wall that is directly under the support structure without affecting load
If load is not on the door section per se, you can remove it but on the corner if that is "load area"? you will have to install a post there...anywhere there is load it has to be supported by a beam if there is a 2nd story on top or other supporting member like a flush fit beam and joist hangers if the roof is directly above that area. Any competent contractor you call for a quote can advise you on this. I am actually working in Calgary building custom decks on weekdays. My consultation fee is $300 paid at visit if you are interested in a consultation then I can advise you as to exactly what you can do. A appointment can be made at my website.
