Hello, I'm in the process of getting rid of the wood trim on the lower half of our hallway, and I'm at a point where I reached a door jam that is in an odd place in the hall. Wife doesn't really want a door here, would prefer the hallway to continue with out the step in for the door jam/door. I pull the door and framing off, and pulled off the sheetrock on one side of the header area. Question is, can I take this all down and make it so the walls and ceiling are continuous down the hall. There is another one part way down the hall. I need to go up in the attic, but I am pretty sure it run parallel to the rafter beams, there is nothing on the other side of the hall on the right, to the left there is a foyer and the foyer wall is in line with this one. Here are some pics, the small 2x4's above the header aren't even resting on the header. EDIT.... Just went into attic, so if your looking at the first pic, the beams in attic run parallel to the header in this area. The wall on the left actually extends up into the attic an extra 2 feet because the rooms on the left side of the hallway are 2 foot taller ceilings.
