hi, hopefully someone knows what i should do.
im building a double garage with the idea that one day it might be converted to habitable space, so im doing a brick outside, block inside cavity wall. its a detatched double. im stuck on the front of the garage. it has 2 single garage doors, with a pier between, supporting a gable. what lintel do i use that will be 2.5m wide and span the cavity?

thanks for your help

Hi Andy, how wide is the cavity? Also how are you insulating the cavity and are your LABC involved to ensure you comply with appropriate Building Regulations?
