We'd like to add a non-weight bearing column/pier to the front of the house around the front window (as suggested in the picture below). We are keen to add a bit more character to our plain house facade.
Have no idea whether it would be a brick frame or if we can get away with a wooden frame, the idea is to install stone panels on this new column. Column can be 6 inches deep and 18 inches wide roughly.
Please provide some guideline. Thanks in advance.
