“Dear PoP,

Got a question for your blog readers….We need to change a 2nd story door (on to what had been a deck) into a window, but have no money for a contractor….Any advice or helpful people out there? We can buy the material – or at least what we think we need – but we’re not sure we can do a good/effective job. The other windows in the house have come from Home Depot, so that’s not a concern. What has me puzzled is how to get the wall beneath the window up to the 18″ thickness of the brick used in the rest of the wall. Cinder blocks? Wood framing with a brick layer? Help?”
