    Thanks again. My bricklayer is not keen and I would have to hire the Strongboys and I think it would be fiddly to get the Lintel in position ( I would have to hire the Stronboys for 2 or 3 weeks due to logistics.)

    Thanks Droog. Just what I needed to know. I suspect it will be difficult to prop the lintels whilst trying to remove tham and fit a bigger one, so I will just remove all the bricks above the doors. I assume doing this would be acceptable until we can get the Lintels out? This still supports the roof as well as the centre column. This should give me enough bricks to have cleaned before the Brickie arrives on sight.

    Hi Guys, I wonder if you can give me some guidance as a safe , minimum effort , way to remove the brickwork on my garage, in order to convert to a single large door.
