Are there any builders here? Can you please tell me how I can tell if a wall in my flat is load bearing? Can I tell by certain sounds?|
I want to put up shelves and a wall-mounted dish drainer, and also a cabinet in the bathroom, but I have no idea how to tell if the walls are strong enough and/or even appropriate! I can't start tearing walls up because I don't own the flat.
And before anyone goes ape at me, I know this question is technically Google-able, but I have tried and I don't get any useful results returned. I'm on the 8th floor of a high rise, but when I search I get results for knocking down internal walls - not what I asked! And when I specify 8th floor it doesn't even register.
I don't know any builders, so I'm hoping someone here can help!
