T-Brick Shed: 17th course

On a rare sunny day we knocked out the 17th course. Only one more to go!

Those tendrils are poly strapping. They’ll secure the bond beam to the last two courses serving to tie the walls together.

I filled the forms on the lintel only about 2/3 full so the next course will be even.

Extricating a form with the machete.

I worked solo for most of the day so I found it worked pretty efficiently to transfer all the cob mixture from the wheel barrow into the window before putting it into the forms.

The last row of the bottle window.
