In Response To: Bricklaying over an old house on piers (Ruth McClanahan)

Ruth ------ Homes, that are going to be faced with bricks, are built with a concrete foundation that projects out beyond the wall framing so the brick facing has something to sit on. I'm not sure, from your description, what would support your proposed brick facing. That amount of brick is quite heavy and gravity is forever. Good luck, Roger
