Building the cavity wall and installing air bricks

Day 8: Cavity Walls Started, Air Bricks Added

We were out all day and got back to see 2 walls forming, the internal and external. These are the walls that will eventually be hidden below ground level.

It is interesting to see how they use different bricks (cheaper ones) at the bottom and nicer looking ones above. All the brickwork looks very neat, straight lines, clean mortar etc. And we measured to compare to plans and all walls the right size too. Starting to look more like a room now.2013-07-24 16.58.28 2013-07-24 16.38.21 2013-07-24 16.42.31 2013-07-24 16.42.24
