Hello from England.
I have a large, blank, brick wall (2-course cavity) at the back of the house and I want to fit a large (6 ft long by 4 ft high) wooden window into it, so I have to fit a reinforced concrete lintel into the wall first. My question: is there a handy trick for fitting this lintel, bearing in mind there is 8/10 ft of brick wall above the lintel which needs to be prevented from collapsing before the lintel is inserted?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Sean;
Without seeing it, I would say that if you are very careful about taking out the existing brick, the top should stay in place.
Have your lintel ready to slip in. It should go in easily, but will be a job taking out the old brick. Good Luck
