Constructing Wall From AAC blocks + Finishing Foundation Concreting Works for Bathroom

In today's home remodeling series we are continuing to build bathroom from scratch.

The other day we removed walls and finished foundation concreting works for one part of house, today we re going to start construct first wall and finish foundation works for another wall, yes still some wall demolition works involved for today.

 A few days ago construction materials arrived and today it was just a a matter of tools and two men power (I had a helping hands) to start some actual works for upcoming bathroom.

Before bricklaying we must install a hydro insulation - ruberoid is glued with special mastic.

There is a special glue/mastic to keep blocks together, but here is the secret first row over ruberoid must be placed on lute.

It's not recommenced to build higher that four rows per day (it's about 1.2 meters in height) to avoid block shifting while glue hardens.

Reinforcment

Reinforcement

At top of the each row we used reinforcement from 5mm metal rods, again to keep wall in level and avoid shifting.
