Week 56 (Starting the inner wythe)

I’ve been too busy to keep my blog postings in order.  I hope to get around to writing about Weeks 54 and 55 before I forget everything, but that’s not looking likely, alas.

Here’s the progress of Week 56: the laying up of the inner wythe.  I have selected a series of photos showing the various stages of the blocks being laid into the mortar, then the mortar being cleaned flush with the block, then the final raked blocks.  Here’s the series:

Good night!
