One of the most common kinds of home interior remodels is removing one or more load bearing walls to create a more open space. While it is no small task to take down a load bearing wall, it gives your home a more open layout and makes it feel bigger and freer inside.
While sometimes a load bearing wall can be identified based on its location, it often takes a licensed engineer to determine if the wall is load bearing or not and if it is, how to safely remove it while still keeping your house structurally sound and safe for an earthquake. A structural engineer can make the determination from either an onsite evaluation or by looking at your home’s original blueprints that may be on record with your city’s building department. The accidental demolition of a load-bearing wall without consulting a licensed structural engineer can cause a lot of damage, not the least of which is the safety and integrity of your family’s home.

Aakash and the engineers at Design Everest were very efficient and cost effective. My project was very complicated, and the building permit process, and inspections, in Sausalito are rigorous. More specifically, I needed a detailed plan for an elevated deck situated on a steep slope. I am very pleased with the result, and with the polite and professional treatment that I received.
Design Everest is a very organized and professional company, I can't say enough good things about them. They are very prompt and courteous in all communications. Their prices are competitive. I recently had a project I needed engineering for right away, they promised date and delivered right on time which enabled the project to continue without any headaches. Thank you, Design Everest!
