    Its not going to do much if you put a small piece of reinforce wire in but it may help hold things together and the stuff is pretty cheap.

    There's a lot of window manufacturers that will build the window to any opening. If it's 3'2" x 2'8" they will charge you for a 4-0 x 3-0. You can always cut the sill to install a taller window, but the width could be a problem because of the lintel. We do this kind of work a lot, never an issue. If you order a masonry window frame it will come without the nailing fins. In stall the window and mortar it in place.

    I already have the windows that are pictured.
    I can’t cut the sill as it is a 8”x8” beam.

    The house was built in the 40’s, it doesn’t have a regular sill & rim joist like modern construction.
