    Hi I am planning on getting a wall built soon. I already have materials for the builder to use (bricks, cement, sand and footing), which should be enough. The wall will need to be 7m long and 2.5m tall. Would anyone be able give me an idea of the approximate time it would take to complete? Or how much it would cost for the builder’s labour and time? Many thanks

    Hi all I am working on building my own brick barbecue at the moment. I have a completed base of concrete and now trying to sort a good mortar mix. I’ve been told to use a ratio of 6:2:1 of sand:lime:cement, but does not seem to have turned out as I had hoped which dries exceptionally quickly and does not bind with the bricks to stick together. Has anyone any advice or suggestions? Should I try a different ratio for the mix?
