Doing a little kitchen renovation. Below is the place where a small pantry and a stack of old double electric wall ovens once lived.
The pantry was on the left, and you can probably make out the door frame. The ovens were stacked on top of each other in the open cavity on the right.
As you can see, the framing of the pantry is still in tact: the wall between the pantry and the ovens, as well as the front of the pantry, above the door that was once there. Tonight I would like to remove the rest of the pantry framing (that wall and the space above the door).
Although I am 99.99% sure of the answer, I want to just make sure that nothing jumps out as a red flag to anyone in case this pantry framing is load-bearing. I know for a fact that the wall behind the pantry/ovens is load-bearing, but the wall dividing the pantry and the ovens, as well as the door frame to the front of the pantry absolutely should not be. But I'd like to get everyone's experience, expertise and opinions before I take it out.
Of course this is all non-binding advice and of course, especially with structural "stuff" and load-bearing walls, I understand I enter at my own risk, blah blah blah. So having recited that little disclaimer:
Is there an easy way for me to test and be certain (or certain enough :-) ) that the pantry framing is not load-bearing?
