bricklaying (porches and extensions part 2)

below are some images to give you an idea as to building a porch or extension with face bricks a cavity and 4 inch blocks


 so we laid out the dpc (damp proof course)
what we must ensure is the dpc overlaps itself on the corners as in the picture

the bricks used below dpc would ordinarily be high density engineering bricks and would be harder wearing against the elements of the weather

   now if you have to leave it here for inspection it would be a good idea to sit a few bricks along the dpc to stop it being blown away in high winds
