    Brooks Masonry LLC

    I do large and small jobs. From Army Corps jobs to patching a hole in your brick mailbox. Everything Masonry.

    Today I was working on a patch job on the control tower at Ft Benning GA. Actually this is the 2nd day, started Friday.

    I knooooowww

    Check dis, some industrial

    We takey da 10' tall opening and makey da 12' tall opening. What's da big deal? 2' tall solid concrete bondbeam with mucho steel. We cutty da bond beam and extend da C channel frame and block up da holes. Of course we cross da opening with a new bond beam!







    This is the first knockout block course(bond beam) to be followed by another knockout course of block with 3 #5's again to make a double bond beam. Pretty stout for a peanut warehouse. You can see where we extended the C channel framed opening up 2'. A lot of work for just 2' more clearance but if you ever worked around a bunch of people driving forklifts, you have to make the building and loading docks idiot proof.

    Of course when Tony and I finish patching the control tower, we will have to see how high the "Ultra Boom" will go.

    Ray, you should know how high the Ultra Boom will go. What is the highest reach of a "genie lift". That is what I call them.

    Hoo-rah, it looks like fun work! The government jobs can be good, if you have an "in" where you can be paid consistently. My new house construction jobs have disappeared in the last 2 years, only the government and a few commercial jobs remain.

    Good thread, Larry! I'm glad you're not of heights, I could never do those jobs!

    BTW, I'm ready for that Brooks BBQ you are going to build for me here!

    Fairly new, it leaks like crazy. My Y and her Dentist have me swap out Masonry work for teeth work. I didn't brick it. I just cut crap out and flash above windows, and fix flashing behind walls where valleys drain. A lot of leaky houses have been built in the last decade. Unskilled workers that weren't "taught" how to do Masonry work, they just do it and cause a lot of problems. Oh well.

    It's not really "high" its just the boomed out part and it bounces a few feet up and down and rocks and sways in the wind. That is the part that is hard to get used to. Easy to smash your hand and such in between the stage and a wall!!
