Brick wall thickness

The convention for describing the thickness of a wall is relative to the length of a brick so goes like this. It may seem counterintuitive but as its long established deviating from it will lead to confusion.

A ½ brick wall which was sometimes called a 4 inch wall is:

A half brick thick brick wallA half brick thick brick wall

A 1 brick wall which was sometimes called a 9 inch wall:

 A one brick thick brick wallA one brick thick brick wall

A 1½ brick wall which was sometimes called a 14 inch wall:

 A one and half brick thick brick wallA one and half brick thick brick wall

And so on, so the next is a 2 brick wall (18 inch wall) and then a 2½ brick wall (22 inch wall).

  1. I really love your site.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you build this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own blog and would love to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is named.. Thank you!

    1. Thank you for your comments Ashley.

      The site is based on WordPress and uses a child of Twenty Eleven theme which I created from the standard Twenty Eleven theme that comes free with WordPress. The colours I chose because I just thought they looked good and the illustrations are pictures I’ve taken, with or without help from Photoshop, or have been created in Sketchup.

      If you have any other questions drop me a line.

      Regards,

      Mark
