I live in a classic raised ranch bi-level home. My attic is a fink truss. I bought thishouseas a bank property but through my research am trying to figure some stuff out. The ex owner I know swapped the kitchen and dining. Why I dont know but I want to re open as I think the area in my picture that is marked with the red x was already open. I am almost positive this is half a dummy wall as all my neighbors have the classic design. Also I dont even think this wall is load as above is a fink truss attic. When I pulled the floor molding I can also see where the wood floor continues under what seems the dummy wall. Thanks much!
