Is this a load bearing wall?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if I can get assistance with this question. I don't think this wall is load bearing, but I want to double check. Can you please let me know if I'm right?

Welcome to the forums.

Strange..... looks like a double 2x4 plate but since there's nothing above..... it doesn't appear to be load bearing.

This must be in a work shed, right? Looks like a single top plate, then a 2x3 turned vertical, then possibly 2x2 or 2x3's for studs. Not load bearing with such small lumber in that configuration.

Where does the beam I see in the middle of the pictures go? From what I see it is supported on wall.

I thought it was two 2x4's. It's a single with a nailer on top of it for the ceiling rock.
Looks to be 2x4 framing as the panel is flush to it.

The plate is attached to pieces of wood nailed in between the roof joists.
Looks like a very shallow pitched roof.

Definitely a non load bearing wall.

This is a wall that separates the garage and the living room. We are thinking of extending the living room since the garage is too small to fit any of our cars. The beam that was mentioned by pugs goes from a support beam that runs down the middle of the house (that's if he is referring to the last picture that has a bit of white and the cables can be seen), which is the pitch of the roof. Thanks for the feedback guys. I can give the guys a thumbs up on the work.
