removing section of wall

I have a kitchen wall that I would like to remove from the counter up to the ceiling. Pulled drywall and it extends out the back of the house forming the exterior wall of breakfast nook. It is supporting the beam running across the top of the nook. If I put about 4 2x4 in that corner creating a point support I should be fine removing the rest of hat wall. Anybody have any experience doing anything like this.

It's not what is beyond the area, it has to do with what is above the area where you are removing support. Tell us what is located above the area, where is the wall in relation to the centerline of the house (if a traditional layout). That will determine if we have to include any support or header above the opening. Unless your nook is a cantilever, I don't think it has a bearing on the remodel.
