So the drainage is all in and we are happy with everything in the ground. Time to start building the brickwork higher now. We will build the outer skin from facing brick and then start to back up with 100mm thermalite celcon block, ensuring all brickwork is tied together with wall ties every 900mm.
We’ll proceed up to around 2100 high from damp before putting the lintels on. We will be using catnic 90 / 100 cougars for this task. The brickwork used here is a Watergate blend, is 73mm and will be laid and pointed in brown mortar.
