I need a dividing wall between kitchen and dining room removed and an RSJ installed as I think the wall is load bearing. I also need a wall knocked through from living room to dining room to form a recess for internal glazed double doors. I need to know the process for planning permission approval. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I understand I need to get a structural engineers report to be submitted to planning dept. of local councl for approval. Once approved, the contracted builder then follows this report while doing the structural work. Is that about right? Also, what should I look for when contracting a suitably qualified/experienced builder? I'll take up a number of previous job references, but is there a governing body which builders should be registered with?Any guidance would be really appreciated.

If the wall is load bearing you will need a steel beam installed. I don't think you will need planning permision but you will need building regs. This is to clarify that the beam is adequate to take the load being imposed on it. The opening for the internal glazed unit should only require a lintol over. A structural engineer could prepare the building regs for you. Both jobs require an experienced builder and you can find one in your area by contacting fmb.com. This is the Federation of Master Builders and all members have been checked and verified.
Hope this helps

The patio doors are H: 6ft and W: 4.5ft. I am not bothered about perfect quality just so long as they are secure, with keys. I want to have them done as soon as possible to keep the heat in. I would welcome any advice. Many thanks.

HI, Sometimes you can find second hand french doors on ebay for a good price. you may have to alter the opening a bit if they are not quite the right size but this is not a big job and you could save money this way.
