How to lay the whole bricks
I’d like to show you how to lay the bricks here.
For the brick installation, it’s important to be carefully and have to be laid perfectly to prevent from damage in case of an earthquake. Perfectly laid bricks get no problem if it falls down of an earthquake.
So, three claps are used to sustain the brick wall stronger:
1. Put a rebar through the brick hole to hook up them vertical.
2. Put a wire truss between bricks to hook up the bricks horizontal.
3. Connect the brick wall to the wooden structural building frame with the brick tie.
Please look at the illustration. Those invisible works are really important.
Those materials are not purchasable in Japan, and we import them from Canada.
