I’m building a rear extension on my bungalow. The block and beam floor has been designed so that the beams run parallel with the rear facing wall. So i understand that usually if they were running perpendicular, the beams would key into the existing wall and be supported by the load bearing blocks within. Can someone please advise me on what would be done in my situation?

would the beam simply butt upto the wall and the lean mix fill the gap? Or is there beams you can buy that are a flat corner end peice?

It doesnt matter as usually the insulation goes on top of the beams and spans the small gap.

There are some lighter weight flooring blocks forterra fenlight is one.
