There used to be a “closed in” kitchen. Only thing missing was a swinging door where I am standing. All that seventies. Even a boob light.
My dad went into the sauna like attic and found the wall wasn’t weight bearing. I got me a hammer and saw.
Only problem was, those 2x4s were completely attached to the ceiling and not coming down.
We continued a 2×4 along the entire length of the ceiling. Beat up some 1×6 and 1x4s, stained them and shellaced them. Someone didn’t measure and cut right so there was a bad gap between the set of boards. I ended up making a tie in that blended the gap rather well.
