When I purchased the farm I knew I needed the bathroom. They did not have a space for one in the house. There were 3 doors on the main floor. One door went upstairs, one to the basement and one to a closet. When I opened the doors they all hit the wall. Bad design, so I knew I had to move the wall. With my cousins help he said we could move the wall but it was weight-bearing. This entailed building 3 support walls to support the house while we moved the wall. It got a little more complicated. The house needed a new support beam.
