Today, in a mixture of sunshine and clouds but no rain, we finished off the final 9½ corners to complete the 4 tiers we got designed for our Perimeter Wall, this adds up to 19 blocks mortared in place.
We then started on doing the straight parts of the perimeter wall, using a new template tool we quickly knocked together to provide a way of applying two even strips of mortar onto the concrete foundation
Plus a string pulled tight between the corners to provide a nice ruler straight line to alight the blocks! We did a further 40 blocks to go around the 1st layer, completing about a third way around. This first level is slower because it needs more mortar and time to make sure it is set properly on the rough foundation strips, but we should speed up once we get onto the 2nd layers and beyond!!
Tomorrow, we resume and hopefully will do about another 50 to 60 blocks and finish the complete circuit!
