Cavity walls shape our extension

Into our third week, and the construction of the shell of our extension and load-bearing walls has begun! We have three bricklayers on site at the moment, and the progress is amazing.  I am in awe of the symmetry of their brick-laying – what an art …

Our extension has cavity walls (facing brick on the outside [outer leaf], and concrete brickwork inside [inner leaf], separated and tied together with wall ties.  We also have cavity insulation  which will prevent moisture crossing the insulation to the inner bricks (we get some really wet weather and driving rain on the South Coast of England.)
