comment Is it safe to cut a bit into a “Double Header(?)” over a closet door that supports ceiling beams?
Wasn't planning on cutting the beams. My plan was to move the bottom of the wall over the closet down a little (already started a bit on that - you can kinda see the drywall I removed in the first pic). I just wanted to make sure I wasn't being too cautious and needlessly adding more work for myself.

Thanks for all the info! I didn't expect to find the area so filled with wood supports. When I first opened the wall and saw that it wasn't going to be as straight forward as I thought, I started cutting the dry-wall on the side of the closet opening in preparation for extending the wall above the closet downward. I just posted here to make sure I wasn't being overly cautious and needlessly adding more work. Thanks again! :)

I'm not sure if you can tell from the 1st picture, but I already started working on you suggested! That was the first thought I had when I opened up the dry-wall and found solid wood :P. You just confirmed for me that it's the best option in this case. Thanks :)

Thanks! If going with solution one, should I pick up some tracks to slide into place or just some thin wood that'll hold a screw?
