  1. Hi All, Just wondering why brickies tend to point up inner course of block on a cavity wall when its going to be dot and dabbed over with plaster board? Why not just scrape off the loose like you do with the reverse side of the facing brick? Cheers C
  2. Been a builder for near on 40 years and done a little bit of everything over the years. Lived around the world a bit, from various countries in East Africa to New Zealand, and now pretty settled in Norway. Favourite work is the restoration of old brickwork using lime mortars, oh and fixing stuff, from cars to boats and everything in between. Was a silver trowel awarded bricklayer at college many moons ago. Love helping folks sort out their stuff, be it repairs, restorations or improvements.
  3. Hi one and all, Bricklayer who's back on the trowel now after an extended break. I love the site and it's great how helpful people are. I'm hoping to help people where I can but to also learn and relearn as I'm a few years out of the game. I look forward to chatting. Cheers
  4. Well, I have tried to make sure i get my bricks on time ....The bricklayer is expecting to start as soon as the frame is up .....so in about 6 weeks (give or take) ...I was told originally that lead time on these bricks Wienberger Jasmine blend was 3-4 weeks and so rather than crowd a small site up ..i left them until now. Only to be told today that they have gone into shortage as they are "imported" and given a possible ? delivery date of mid November (groan) ....the only people holding stock in the UK have gone all "Dick Turpin" and want more that £2 a brick now . to me they are just like a pale reclaim (see image below of a house built with them) ...to my wife they are the bees knees however ... Has anyone seen anything like them ?
  5. Hi All I thought I had all my trades "lined up" for the next 3 months ...but for some reason the Bricklayer (really nice guy too) has gone AWOL ..No returning calls and no answered emails ....so its been like 2 weeks of trying so ..... does anyone know a good brickie ...(pref with experience working on timber frame) in the Bucks, MK area thanks In advance Ed
