You should be just fine,----A hole like that will require a good sized hammer drill--they can be rented,some rental places will rent you the bit also.---good luck-have fun---Mike--

You are fine --If you can go through a morter line your drilling will go faster.

It takes a lot to knock down a brick building. Just go to it and have fun.--Mike--

we'd use a diamond core bit for the brick part of the hole THEN our bosch rotating hammer for the conc,,, no sense is having to make addl brick repairs if you can avoid it !
