Hello all, I am going to lay a small 2 wythes brick wall with 2 90 degree corners. Also would like to cap the wall with the same king sized bricks with a 1/4" overhang. Any pointers on the corner layout? I was planning to just do a running bond.
Standard running bond does not work with king size brick, you will have to do 1/3 bond or lay in some chips at the corners which do not look that good as a rule.
Edit- Modular brick are 4x8, so they work in bond around corners. Kings are not 5" wide, so they do not maintain bond around the corner. They are generally one third the length in width, which means if laid whole, they will be laid in 1/3 bond or you will have to have a small piece of brick (smaller than the desired minimum of 1/4 of a unit) to maintain running bond.
It seems as though I could bring to outer wythe in (8" outside to outside) and use a whole brick as a cap with a small overhang. If I should be spacing the wythes a full brick I can skip the overhang...
