A reader's General Construction question: Bricklaying question?
O. E from Malacca Malaysia had this bricklayin question.
It needs renovation and probably rebuilding as it is abandoned for many years. If buying materialized (certainly within 8 weeks from now) that house will be mine and I plan to turn it into BED AND BREAKFAST.
Unfortunately, I am not thinking to find a professional contractor, because I cannot afford. As I am not a builder, it will not be an easy job to be self-contractor which is the only option I have.
Mr Bill, can you help? Do you know bricklaying? I am considering, to add new part to existing building within the land of the house.
There is a big land which I can turn into more rooms. If you know bricklaying, please advice me if I can save money building brick walls without the need of plastering all exterior walls. The existing part of the house has plastered walls for all its masonry.
More information will be sent to you as soon as I get the house. In the mean, I will be grateful to you for your early reply.
