Re: GSBN:Loadbearing sb with moisture damage

Retrofitting a window sounds interesting.
What about lintels - how are they inserted?
I assume that for small openings that easy.

have to run for cover while the wall exploded--very little happened.

Hmmm. Interesting.  So how do you attach the window?

Are you not doing this on a regular basis because it was harder in
the long run?
