Yes they are, and it's another $800 (somewhere around that range) for a lighter mortar if you choose lighter bricks, otherwise the color of the standard mortar will stand out.

Building Inspector - Ask Anything

Hello Inspectors and Experts. If noggins are not tightly fitted between studs is there a risk the wall frame could move and cracking the internal plasterboard sheets?

Greenvale Gardens, Greenvale VIC - Boutique Homes
