I would like to open my kitchen up into the diningroom to make like a country kitchen. How do I know if I need to have a beam put in? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

your best bet is to have a qualified carpenter look at it to see if the wall is a bearing wall. Taking out bearing walls without proper shoring could spell disaster.If the house is a one story house its not that hard, but if you have a second floor its more complicated.You then should see an architect to tell you what size header is needed for the size opening desired, and the load the wall will be carrying.
