Just bought this cottage and i wan't to make a big hole in the side o
it, to put some french doors in. I'm not sure how to approach this jo
as the wall's are at least 3' thick. I think they're dry and the stone
are made of hard and soft material. Any suggestions would be muc

Rent one of these??
It says it can do 24" plunge cuts, so you'd have to cut from both
sides to cut 3'. When you do it - videotape it! This I gotta see....
I think we would all need more information.
The major issue here is ending up with a header to carry the load
over head once you remove the material in the proposed opening.
How are existing openings carrying their loads?
I would expect that after you consult with a structural engineer,
you will need to over demolition the hole, probably with a jack
hammer, and re-lay perimeter stone around the opening. How are
the windows and doors of the existing structure done?
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
