Hi, A friend wants to make the kitchen bigger and wants to take the door frames out. Will it be ok to just remove them or will he need to install an RSJ to support the ceiling? Many thanks

Knock a bit of the ceiling out and see what is there. I suspect there is a joist there but you need to check. If it needs a steel Building Control will need to give approval and you will need load calculations.

Hmm, I had assumed a new staircase was going in after the kitchen wall was shifted forward to enlarge the kitchen. Hmmm............
