      A valuable addition to the popular Residential Construction Academy series, this book introduces and explains modern residential masonry construction procedures, as well as current building and construction industry safety regulations relevant to the field. Beginning masons, designers, homebuilders, students, and apprentices alike will benefit from the clear diagrams and step-by-step procedures. With technical information from nationally recognized trade associations like the National Association of Home Builders, Masonry Brick and Block Construction is a "must-have" for the aspiring mason.
      • Detailed illustrations clearly spell out procedures, instead of simply explaining them, so readers can learn and replicate important skills with ease
      • Self-assessments and lab activities offer reinforcements of key concepts
      • Factual information from the International Residential Code is incorporated where applicable so readers are getting the most accurate, most reliable information available to the industry
