Moving a load bearing wall - Kitchen Expansion

Hey Guys!

In our attempt to renovate and expand the kitchen in our 2 story home, we have run into a pickle. Hopefully not a big deal, but we rather post it here and see what others think.

To better describe the issue, I have attached a few images. Practically we need to move 2 small load bearing walls that make up the current half bath. Pushing it back a few feet to completely expose prior bathroom and extend the kitchen space.

Thanks in advanced!

- See the .PDF attachment below for a drawing that may help!

Welcome to the forums! Which walls are you wanting to remove? The one with the red cabinets hanging from it? The only load bearing wall I see is the one running along the laundry door plane. Which way are your ceiling joists running? Parallel or perpendicular to the cabinet wall?
