I am hoping to remove a portion of wall along with a door header. I don't think it is load bearing but I just wanted to get some opinions.
I have had one contractor say it is, and another say it is "definitely not".
The red portion is what I would like to remove, and the yellow portion IS load bearing (basement is unfinished, so it is easy to tell).
House was built in the 60's. I should note that the floor joists run perpendicular to the load bearing (yellow) wall.
Please see additional photos with the drywall removed. It looks to me as though it is non-load bearing. Is it clear to anyone that it is, or is not, load-bearing?
