In response to Re: Moving a wall to enlarge Master Bath
IF it is a load bearing wall a couple of inches will probably not be a factor, but it would still have to be checked to see. If you mean 2 to 2 1/2 feet, then it does become a factor. If it is a bearing wall, just putting the new wall up before removing the old one will not be a correct way to do it, and would not replace the removed wall properly.

: If we move our wall back 2 or 2-1/2" to enlarge our Master Bath, Should there be concerns about it being a load bearing wall, since we are putting a wall back up and will probably put the wall up BEFORE we tear down the existing bathroom wall? The room ajoning is our 4th bedroom. 10 X 13, which could afford to be shortened in sacrifice for our Larger Bath. If an Engineer is need where do I find one???
