Did I just remove a load bearing wall?

I had a half wall removed between my kitchen and dining, now my shower above has a problem where the frameless glass is rubbing together. Coincidence or did I just mess up my house?? Please help.

Welcome to the forums Tiffany!

It doesn't appear to be a load bearing wall since there is no header/beam at the top of that opening. Have you put a level on the bath rm floor?

Hi! Thanks for the reply. No I have not, but I will try that today.... the contractor ended up removing the top bit and now itís almost level with the ceiling ..... itís just a weird coincidence then, because the contractor really was banging up on the ceiling. He hid all the wires along the top of the ceiling and put a box around. Itís completed now actually and looks great, but the shower door thing really freaked me out!!

this is the finished project

Ya, it sounds like the banging around is what caused the shower door to get out of alignment.
I couldn't get your link to work

Even a "non-load bearing" wall provides support so there may now be a bit of sag in the floor!
