Load Bearing Walls

One of the advantages of wood frame construction (the vast majority of single residential construction) is the ease with which one can alter or eliminate a load bearing wall. Your contractor will need to know what he/she is doing. It might even be necessary to have some engineering calculations to figure out the size of the beam needed for the job. But in terms of the total cost of the job, the cost of such structural alterations is likely to be less than the cost of the electrical components of the project.
