The Gatehouse

Exterior sitting terrace made from bricks salvaged from streets in Minneapolis. The wood lintels are reclaimed timbers, and the windows are all wood (interior & exterior) from Marvin. The vintage urn is from Jerome, Arizona.

Hi, I am reviewing options on Marvin Ultimate Casement windows and was wondering if you happen to remember which option you went with for the interior frames of the windows above, between solid wood or fiberglass coated with veneer. Thanks!!

Did you need to use an angle iron for the reclaimed lintels? How does this work structurally?

The lintel bears on the stone (ea. side of opening). There really isn't a lot of weight above the lintel for the lintel to "carry". Thank you for your question.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

All windows have some weight above them bearing down, so a structural header or lintel is necessary to distribute that weight around the window. If you are enlarging the size of an existing opening, have an engineer calculate what size the header or lintel needs to be. Here a large wood lintel adds character to the home. The stone sill here is an excellent choice as well — a lot of water will run down the front of your windows in a storm, and stone, unlike wood, will never rot.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Post and Lintel
A lintel over a window is also known as a header.
"As the owner is very into landscaping and gardening, she devised a layout for the front brick courtyard and plantings," Murphy says. The bricks on the entry terrace were reclaimed from the streets of Minneapolis.
