Kitchen/Living room picture window wall

Hello all,

First time posting here, Iíve attach a picture of the wall that I want to remove. This section of the wall is pretty much cut out leaving opening to look into the living room. The knee wall and the door opening area should be able to come down?

I should also note that wall ends when it turns into the living room and ends at the end of the doorway. Does not go past either end and does not go into the kitchen

The part above the kneewall, definitely. The part over the doorway... "you would think so", but it would be helpful to double check in the attic that no joists sit on top of that small section and happen to be half lapped above it, just to make sure. Also check below the walls to see what might be running up into them.

If there is any electrical or plumbing in the wall you would like to remove, consider where it will go if you remove the wall it's currently in. You can't just clip wires then cap and conceal them in the floor or ceiling.

The two outlets go down in the basement and hit a junction box with other lines going in and out. So those can be removed with no issues. I will double check on the hoist above the small section
