Question

is cold jointing an issue with brick laying?


i was gonna build a little brick wall and was wondering if it's OK if i do it in several cold-jointed batches. i am hoping cold jointing is not an issue in brick work, like it is with concrete formations.

If it were you would never see anything bigger than a firepit built of masonry.
