Or can i remove the recessed bricks and fit the new door and frame, I will be plastering the front so do not mind the lintel if it's a HAVE TO ! But if I can avoid the extra work ;).Done similar but have never tackled a face brick house before !!?Any help with this would be fantastic!

Simply Build It

the wall does not look like its load bearing regarding the roof.I would install a steel post 100x100 each end to reinforce the ends of the walls and give extra support for the roof.
