    Hello I'm opening up a chimney breast
    1400mm wide aiming for a 1100cm opening.

    questions
    how thick should the brick columns/cheeks be on either side to support the lintel?

    the chimney flue/bricks inside go across the chimney will these bricks need supporting once removed? fireplace lintel raise.png

    many thanks
