Brick/Block left cheek

Recommended Posts

I'd really like to have a fully brick/block dormer. The right hand side will be part of the gable wall, so that's easy. The front could be built off the beam, so should be straight forward...but I'm at a loss as to how the left hand side a) could be supported (400mm wide) and b) built at an incline.   The load baring wall on the first floor could be used, and maybe some cross beam between Beam 5 and 4.


It sounds like it could be a cold-bridging nightmare and safer/easier (and a little cheaper) to go with timber & clay tiles....unless I'm missing something obvious.

I'll see if I can find slips to match, otherwise it'll have to be timber with clay tiles.

You could use the bricks you are going to use and send them to a brick cutting service
