Wall Removal

Hello
I am going to remove an existing wall that runs parallel to the ceiling joists. The wall is 12'. I don't beleive that the wall is weight bearing but not quite sure. If it is weight bearing, is there any way to remove that wall without having to support the ceiling with columns or posts so I don't loose any of the new space that I am trying to gain? Could you please contact me ASAP due to the fact that I have a limited time to perform this task.

wall parrallel to the ceiling trusses means it is not a bearing wall. Go up into your attic to make sure nothing is sitting on top of it.

If you do need to support something, you can install microlams and support each end with a post. The sizing depends on what you are holding up.
