I'm in the process of renovating the kitchen. One of the walls is waaaay out of square, which is going to make life very difficult when the time comes to install the kitchen cabinets.
Basically the wall is a brick veneer with the stud wall being tied into the brick wall with wire tie-ins. It is an external wall on the ground floor of a double storey. The framework I want to replace spans about 4m.
I was really hoping to make up a new stud wall, pull out the old studs and noggins and fit the newly made stud wall square to the adjoining walls.
So some questions:
Is is likely to be load bearing? If so, is it possible to remove the bulk of the studs and noggins, leaving the outer studs and a couple near the middle standing to support the weight while the new framework is fitted around these, then pulling these out to replace with new? make any sense?
What about the tie-ins - can i just re-attach them to the newly fitted stud wall?
Attached are some pics of the existing wall that I want to square up.
