    I'm building a 3m x 5m outbuilding. The back and one side (that won't be seen) will be in block. The front and one side (that will be seen) will be in brick. The bricks are reclaimed, and three courses are taller than a block. How do I bond the corners, where blocks meet bricks?

    IIRC, five courses of bricks will be about two courses of blocks (and a big joint), and then two courses of bricks will be up to the third block course. Rinse and repeat.

    Or cut some blocks or bricks as required. And/or use some stainless expanded metal or tie wires where the beds nearly align.
