My house is a 1970’s cement-block structure (single story). I want to cut a new window into an exterior wall, which is load bearing. Do I need to put a header above the opening.

In the first episode of FHB House Kansas, Travis and Joe of Catalyst Construction walk through details of their foundation walls.
