Moving a load bearing wall less than 1m

We have moved a load bearing wall less than 1 metre back in towards the middle of the house.
Is there a 'safe' distance to move this wall, or should we re-inforce with a steel beam in the ceiling?

Hi Kathryn,

Please find information about load-bearing walls here:

It is difficult to give a definite answer to this question as circumstances vary from building to building; regulations may also vary in some states.

In the case of structural developments, we would always recommend consulting a construction professional - your builder or architect - for peace of mind.

All the Best
