What is the height of the brick above the opening? Supporting one floor or two? What about the attic or roof? What is the joist length?

No roof or attic supported by the beam?

how can you debit my card when I have not received a answer from you
It took so long for you to give me the information I had to get it done elsewhere

I didn't debit anything. You payed a deposit when you asked the question. I also asked questions that you didn't answer
