Cinder block house construction – In terms of decoration, what touches the vintage and even the rustic comes back in strength, marrying perfectly with the modern to create a contrast that does not leave indifferent. In this logic, what’s more raw and rustic than concrete bricks, or breeze blocks? For each block, make a generous bed of mortar (2cm), the block will be easier to adjust.
Lay the block by checking its horizontality (level) and alignment with the string. Tap the hammer to adjust it. With a trowel, remove the excess mortar on the sides and fill the vertical joints between each block. Regularly check the verticality of the wall using the mason’s rule and level. The lintel block is very fragile and must imperatively be cut with the angle grinder (especially to allow the passage of vertical scrap).
Install it as follows by pre-wetting it (its flat surface makes it quickly absorb water from the mortar and makes it difficult to adjust its position). Once the row is placed, position the horizontal scrap, then pour concrete. To complete the wall, fill the corner blocks containing the vertical scrap with concrete and arrange, for example, fairground bricks. Hoping it was useful for you, see you next time!
