New to the forum. Looking into buying a center entrance colonial (Massachuestts) house. Prefer a more open plan than is typical of this style, but 90% of the housing stock in the area are CECs. Our ability to open the floor plan through low cost wall removal will determine the specific house we buy. My problem is I don't know how to determine if a wall is load bearing and expensive to reconfigure or non load-bearing and relatively less expensive to remove. I am looking for suggestions on determining if an interior wall is load-bearing or non load-bearing. We have not chosen a specific house, so I'm don't think hiring an engineer at this point is the best approach. Books for research? Any other thoughts? Thanks.
