Brick movement above damp proof course

I had a look of the side of the house and found that the next expansion joint is about 11m away. I did some reading online and joint spacing is…

Thanks mate. Good advice, I will talk to the builder.
Just wondering, at a certain point wouldn’t the brick stop expanding, and damage to surrounding bricks and mortar would cease?

Thanks, I was referring to this photo - current state of the wall with the split brick faces and crack in the corner brick. Hopefully it doesn’t get any worse.

Thanks, I have no real evidence of movement either, so yes pretty sure it’s overhang. Any idea of how overhang would cause damage to brick underneath though, like the cracks…

In hindsight we probably should not have done the garden bed in this area... The slab is quite high in this area, probably about 500mm above ground level.

You'll find that once a minister or local MP gets behind a school or infrastructure project, things move very quickly. Just prior to the election the Education Minister tossed his…

Hi there, I've just got a reply from DEC and apparently the new school won't be open before 2020, depending on enrolment needs and funding.

Re: jcm regarding the community title issues - it's certainly a mess and it's impossible to get a straight answer. Growth Centres NSW have changed the wording in the North…

Hi trooper79, great work. Regarding the Community Title lots and the Eden Park thread you've linked to, it seems that the CDC approval process won't be possible. Although the Council…

Hi trooper79, good info from the contract. I've yet to receive mine (David says next week hopefully).
With regards to those two points, when I bought my PPOR last year, the…

Wow trooper79, you're a champ! Thanks for the contours.
