Hi all, hope someone can help
I'm putting an 12ft RSJ in, one end into a cavity wall. When I have
opened the wall there is the end of a wood lintel that is supporting
the inside wall over a window.
If i cut the wood so that the RSJ sits on brick that would only l;eave
about 3-4 inches of the wood left sitting on brick.
Alternatively can I sit the RSJ on the wood beam (with the packing
slate in between), but even then I would have to take some of the wood
off for it to fit.?
The RSJ is supporting a single brick wall, no joists, but the wood
beam will be supporting some joists over a 6 ft window.
Thanks for any help.
