    Hello,

    I've just removed two internal walls to make one larger room. The chimney now remains in the middle of the room and the next plan is to increase the existing hearth opening and then make a new opening at the back so that we can put in a double-sided burner.

    The existing front of the chimney is single skin brickwork so the new lintle is not a problem, but the opening to be made at the back will be in 230mm (9") deep brickwork.

    Is it ok to double-up two lintels, or do I need to get something else to bridge this depth?

    Cheers.
