DIYer here and recently bought a fixer upper. I'd like to remove the wall between the kitchen and the livingroom. I'd like to complete this project soon so I can insulate the attic. My home inspector told me that wall is not load bearing and I can remove it if I want. The kitchen and livingroom each measure 12'x17'. There is no plumbing inside the wall separating the rooms but there is electrical. I'm very comfortable with electricity, so I have no issues relocating it. How can I remove this wall while keeping the ceiling joists?
Thanks in advance.
