Laying Bricks

Just before the holidays, the masons started laying brick for interior walls in the basement of Huntsman Hall. This is the first finish to be completed on the interior of the building. I thought you’d like to see what it looks like since the webcams don’t really show interior work.

Inside brick wall
Last week, the masons started laying brick on the exterior face of the building, but you wouldn’t know it. That’s because you can’t see it. “What?!?” you may ask. Even though it’s on the exterior, you can’t see it? Let me explain.

Outside brick wall
Due to the need to control working conditions, the masons have to have a controlled environment to lay brick. That’s easy when the work is on the interior. It’s not so easy when it’s on the exterior. So, masons have developed a tent that they use during inclement seasons of the year. It is a movable tent.

Actually it’s more than being just mobile, it moves with them. It travels. It’s a traveling tent.
