19th century internal wall removal

Recommended Posts

Any body have any experience in removal of a late 1800s internal wall?

Said wall atleast carries into first floor, possibly upto the attic rooms (viewing the house tomorrow).

I know anything is possible with money but would it be esthetically do-able or by the time of a possible thickness required and then fire proofing it'll just be ridiculously encroaching to height.

I appreciate there's too many variables and given too little detail to give an accurate answer.

I assume then that it is structural.

 

What are your  plans for the wall upstairs? If it is staying you will need a new support of some type of course.

 

is the building listed?

 

And a plan and some photos would help.

Done dozens, you will need a set of drawings for building control 

so either local architect who has worked on the same type of property, or a structural engineer. 

Do it right and hide any steel work in the floor void so it doesn’t encroach downstairs

if this is too costly then you will have probably a 225-250 minimum beam showing in the downstairs room. 

 

That is a massive guess without further information.

Viewing tomorrow so will hopefully grab potential wall thickness, build type etc. Previous occupant knocked through for a door into an ensuite wetroom.

Upper walls will be remaining put.

Building is category b listed, but received this due to the outside features according to reading pasmap

Back room is the wetroom ensuite and "utility room." The ensuite is carved out making that room an awkward U-shape. The new room created has the potential to become a large 4.7mx7m, kitchen, diner, sitting area.

So viewed the house. Recon the walls are lathe and plaster, as evident in the attic rooms. The wall sounded hollow and not solid.

Ultimately not going to offer on the house as there's an industrial extractor and bin store for a pub right outside one of the corners.
