We are considering widening this existing opening and installing double doors. Is there any chance that this wall is load bearing?
I was going to be overly cautious and put up temporary supports for the trusses above. But I'm wondering if I'm being paranoid.
Except for a small angle brace toward one end of the opening, the trusses aren't directly connected to the top plate of the, 6' wall below . There is a gap the same thickness as the ceiling drywall between them. One of the trusses above the wall is blocked (if that's the correct term) with the next one down.
Construction of the wall is with 2x6s. I believe there is a double top plate. A portion of an adjacent wall runs outside.
If this short, 6' wall is indeed load bearing, what is the best way to support the ceiling/roof until the new framing is in place?
