Brick layers - watch it! I'm tunin' up


One of my least favorite home projects - masonry repair. Directly or indirectly. my favorite small furry critters have caused my problem. I re-layed the 40" high wall on the front side of my garage not long after we moved here as it had to be taken down when I replaced the rotted plate under that outer wall plus it had had some damage from water getting behind it and freezing. This past winter/spring the chipmunks along with some mice got between the bricks and wall, again letting water in one corner and freezing. Luckily it isn't too bad - 20 or so bricks plus a cap row. And of course it's right in the direct sun for a good part of the day. It's apart, cleaned and ready, but wont happen most likely until early tomorrow AM.

PS: Anyone need a few chipmunks. I have a surplus - again

Went out to pick my tools up after doing my OP and found that the sun was being blocked by a tree - the season is changing and that tree has grown - and did my project. Any brick layers don't have any worries. I'm lousy at that kind of work. At least it looks better then it did and the l'il beasties can't get in - at least for a while
