“Remove a wall to make the kitchen two feet deeper” sounds a lot easier than it is. For this kitchen remodeling project in Warren, NJ the design plan included removing the main, bearing wall in a colonial home to re-frame a new wall and opening two feet into the dining room.
A steel I-beam was required to support the 2nd floor above with a flush ceiling in the kitchen. As well as the framing, electric wires and duct work had to be moved from the old wall to the newly framed wall.
This project was designed, developed and sold by Design Build Planners. Craftsmanship is by Pro Skill Construction.
Below, you can find various photos of this kitchen project. To give more detail, the first photo shows the existing wall against the main bearing wall of the colonial home. The second photo is a computer design for the new kitchen with the bearing wall removed and a new wall framed two feet into the dining room. The third photo shows ceiling joists cut back to make space for the steel I-beam. The fourth shows the steel I-beam with wood bolted to it on either side. The remaining photos show various angle shots.
