I've decided to document the brick-wall building on the top floor of our project house, it's typical of the system and there was a place to put the camera out of harms way. These pictures are taken looking towards an existing stone wall that we will re-point and leave as stone. The walls I am building will enclose a large closet on the left, with a bunch of winter storage, and the bathroom across to the right. The stairs descend in the foreground.
The first step is to move the bricks up two flights of stairs, then to erect some boards to define the ends and set them in plumb and level. These boards are temporary but eliminate the need to constantly be checking and correcting with a spirit level. They are clamped to a piece of wood which will support a rolling door in the oh so distant future.
