Walls and outline taking shape

  • 15/11/2016

Now that the slab is done, I have started to make some progress in getting the blockwork done. It’s not as quick as an experienced builder would be doing it, but I am saving a hell of a lot of money by doing this in my spare time.

I’ve been using a bricky to get my mortar level and so far it has been a godsend. It allows the joints to be nice and even. The only issue is that it becomes really difficult to take out any unevenness with a thicker bed.

Another issue I have noticed is that the bricky is tight against the insulation and this makes it difficult to move.
