To see what happened before this go to Brick Veneer Platform Floor Section Part 2
To watch the video got too ‘Brick Veneer Platform Floor Section Part 3’.
Vermin wire is run from the bottom plate and bedded into the brickwork so that Vermin can't get up into the wall cavity from the floor space.
The Brick veneer is tied to the timber frame every 4th course using veneer ties.
The ties are nailed to every stud slightly above the brick and then bent down so it can be bedded into the mortar. This will ensure that any moisture or water that runs down the back of the brick will stay against the brick until it hits the flashing and exits via the weephole.
The brickwork should be laid to a ‘bond’ so that it finishes around 10mm below the ‘Drop Off’.
Below the window the brickwork should finish 2 courses down to allow for the sill bricks and the flashing that is attached to the window should be embedded into the brickwork as well.
With the brickwork complete the eave frame can be built. There are a few different styles of eave that you could have, the one shown here is a Boxed or Level Eave.
The finished eave should finish around 10mm above the brickwork to allow for the timber frame to settle overtime.
A quad or similar moulding is used to cover the gap and still allow for the movement.
With the outside finished the work inside can really start. Internal linings such as Plasterboard can be installed.
Plasterboard can also be used on the ceiling and the intersection covered with a cornice moulding again made from Plasterboard.
Architrave is used to cover the gap between the window jamb and the wall and a Skirting mould use to cover the connection between the wall and the floor.
