remove window to install door - structural brick
My house is a 1921 brick semi. I have a window that I would like to change to a door. The rough opening is wide enough however the height is too short. I will need to remove the exterior cement window sill and 2 full layers of brick below it. This will leave 2 layers of brick before the brick arch above my basement window.
Do I have to install a new steel baseplate when I remove the brick? Can I removed the brick without causing structural problems. Please help!.
