Can i safely raise my celiings?

I just bought a 1 1/2 story new englander. Up stairs there is 2 small bedrooms and the ceiling is only like 6' high. I want to knock out the dividing wall and make one big bedroom with a small bathroom and cathedral the celing. How do i tell if this is possible? I can take pics if needed...

The only way you can tell for sure is to get a structural engineer or archit to look at it. There are alot of other things that come into play here. This is not an easy or cheap job. Anything given here would just be a guess, and this is no area to be guessing in. Good Luck
