Bricks strutting out.
Hi, I am new to this forum and need some advice regarding the brickwork hiding behind some boxing near my internal stack pipe next to the single storey kitchen extension that was done in the 70s. I have removed some of the boxing both at the top and the bottom to look inside. I can see the internal wall RSJ is on a padstone, but two courses down there are some bricks of varying depth strutting out 90 degrees from the external wall. I believe they are the original internal wall. Is there a reason they are still there? They don't go all the way to the floor. Is it because they didn't bother cutting them as they were boxing in the stack pipe anyway. Asking as I would like to shrink the size of the boxing to fit a larger cabinet. I can see the external wall rsj and that seems to be just into the wall with no nibs.

Given that the steel is resting on that wall I'd be reluctant to say "just chop them off" Maybe get a builder in to have a good look and advise ? if you can find some-one local ...
