What is structural?
Cape Cod house from the 1920s.
We’ve just bought this house and I would like to remove some of these beams to open up the space. After my research, I believe its prudent to have a knee wall but not entirely structural.
My question is; do any of these beams look structural? Are there any that definitely are or are not? I realise the diagonal larger beams are and the joists also are. I really only mean the interior wall supports. I have a good idea but would like confirmation as I am new to American houses.
I do want to get a professional in but I’d like to plan while away on business and I can’t get one in before I go!
