Exterior & Interior Design: Since the beginning of time, Masonry has been one of the most reliable building materials used in many different applications and designs. It's durable, strong, and provides beauty that lasts for centuries. In combination with other building materials such as steel, wood, glass, concrete, and tile, brick and stone provide some of the most beautiful structures ever created. The Exterior program shows hundreds of ways brick and stone have been used in creating beautiful arched entries, dynamic columns and beams, windows and doors framed with unique masonry patterns, mailboxes, beautiful fences and planters, and dozens of ways to incorporate brick and stone in landscaping. The Interior program shows fireplace designs; lobbies and entry ways; floors and stairways; waterfalls and aquariums; stoves and inserts; arched and curved walls with built in stereo and TV; kitchens, with bricked in appliances; and sculptured brick designs that tell a story. A unique arrangement of ways to use brick and stone on the interior of homes and office buildings. Learning The Art of Laying Brick: It will help you develop the basic skills needed by the Mason, using step by step procedures. It discusses tools and equipment, mortar, different bonding patterns, and proper technique. The program shows the tools and materials needed to set up a low-budget work area and learn the basic skills without spending a lot of money for tools and material. You will be amazed at how quickly you can learn the basic techniques, and then apply those skills in building your own small projects. Masonry Contractors can use this DVD in training programs.
