We have one of those 'double' wide backdoors - it's wooden framed, the
one half is just a window at half height - the lower half being
We had a conservatory built and this backdoor opens into it.
I want to remove the old door plus the lower bit of brickwork and
replace it with bifold wide door - to improve access/maximise light
My question is this - can I just rip out the doorframe and cut and knock
out the brickwork.
There appears to be a steel lintel and logic tells me that the door
frame and therefore lower brickwork/wall section can no way be load
bearing.... but the seed of doubt is there all the same! :)
Can anyone reassure me that this is ok - or perhaps more importantly
warn me if it isn't!
