im thinking of cutting a hole in my besser brick wall to put two narrow vertical windows in.
I was unaware that cuttin the bondbeam might significantly weaken the wall.
I was going to take out from three bricks off the ground up to ceiling and inserting a header like all the other windows in the house have.
If the top row is a bondbeam ( will drill to check tomorrow ) is it best to cut through it and put a header in or is it okay to simply take all the bricks out below it leaving the bond beam row intact as a type of header?
or do i do something else entirely?
