replacing bulkhead

Briefly, and simply stated, in home improvement projects on older homes, where there is sagging in a load bearing wall, a second bearing wall is often built right up against the original wall to assume the load. The original wall can either be removed or left in place. Given the relatively thin cross section of the typical bulkhead, this might be a type of "fix" worth exploring.
