I think this is something I can do myself since there is a cabinet on the other side of the wall. The cabinet goes all the way to the ceiling in the other room. The cabinet appears it go back almost all the way through, only a few inches to spare.
The outlined area is the minimum I need to raise the alcove, but would like to raise it higher to move the storage to the kitchen. Would it be easier to just take over the entire cabinet space from the other side?
I feel like I should be able to just take out the cabinet and reframe both sides of the wall simply enough. Is this as easy to do as I think it should be, or are there major complications I’m not thinking of?
