Bricklaying and Cement-Mixing Made Easy

You don’t need to be an expert bricklayer or cement mixer to learn how to use these materials. Anyone can learn the basics, and it’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it! Follow these instructions, and you’ll be laying bricks and mixing cement like a pro in no time!


What you need

To get started, you’ll need a few basic tools: a utility knife, a flathead screwdriver, a chisel, a 5mm Allen wrench (or star), a rubber mallet, safety glasses, gloves and ear protection. You can purchase these from hardware stores for between $20 to $30. In addition to your tools, you’ll also need cement for mixing your mortar. Mortar is made up of one part Portland cement to three parts sand by volume.

What you will learn

These easy-to-follow instructions will help you become an expert at bricklaying and cement mixing. Within minutes of reading these instructions, you should be able to start your first project. The last thing any man wants is to hire someone else to do his work because he lacks knowledge or skill. To not only save money but also gain confidence, you need to become skilled at home projects like bricklaying. This simple guide can teach you how it’s done!

Step 1 – Preparation

You have a wheelbarrow of cement sitting in front of you. A bag of sand for stabilizing it. A hose with fresh water running from a faucet. It’s time to mix some concrete, baby! Now, I know what you’re thinking – this is going to be hard! But don’t worry – it really isn’t that difficult once you get used to it. So let me take a minute and show you how easy it really is...

Step 2 – Mixing concrete

Okay, you’ve got your bricks. Now it’s time to start laying them. Once again, a good way to keep things straight is to write a series of stops down on a piece of paper or a Post-It note. This way, you can quickly check off what you’ve already done without having to look at what you have yet to do. The idea is that once one stop has been accomplished, then you go on to stop two.

Step 3 – Laying bricks

When mixing concrete, make sure to add water to cement slowly. It’s important to add it gradually so that you get a good consistency of concrete (wet enough but not too wet) because if you add too much water, you won’t be able to use your mortar. If there is too little water then it will be difficult for you to use and will crack easily when it dries out. You should always do at least one or two test batches before using your mixture on an actual project because we all know that we might get carried away while adding different amounts of water at once! Good quality cement can help increase workability. Here are some tips
