    Hi All,

    Long time reader, first time poster here. I’m looking at doing some renovations to my home - want to remove a couple of internal walls and exterior walls too (image attached below, yellow highlights indicate walls required to be removed)

    I understand first step is to obtain an engineers report to identify whether these walls are load bearing or not and if so, what steps need to be taken to ensure stability of the home.

    Any recommendations on engineers in the lower north shore area which can produce a report for me in regards to this? Any other tips would be much appreciated too, thanks!

    What does it turn into eventually? A concert hall with 2 bedrooms attached?

    No, no!

    Please don’t remove the en-suite walls.

    There are some bodily functions that simply should remain private. Neither seen nor smelled!
