Due to the age of our house, we don’t have lintels above our exterior windows and doors. We needed to get these done before we could have new windows installed.

We opted to get rid of the soldiers (upright brickwork) and have it match the rest of the house. Installing the lintels meant that we have a slightly larger opening than we did before, hence the expanding foam!

You can see the height difference between where the soldiers are, and where the interior lintel has been placed. This is how much taller our opening now is.

No, it’s not being held up with the planks!
