    I love this site...I'm in!
    I've never laid 1 brick in my life but this site seems to be full of gracious people and ample documentation that I think I can do this! I've even already found a link to the "bricky" tool that may help me out a bit.
    I just downloaded the ebook and am perusing the site. I hope to begin construction in the next 2 weeks or so! Will keep you posted with updates but if anyone has a link to some kind of "i'm a newbie and I did it!" post, let me know!

    Welcome, Nick.

    I'm a newbie and I have about as much experience with brick laying as you. I'm just about to the oven floor building step and I haven't had any issues so far. This forum is full of great info. Good luck!

        I've been beating the drum for the bricky for years. I pretty much hate concrete block, having laid a bunch of it, and if I were to do my project again, I'd build my interior chimney with real brick instead of tile covered concrete block.

        It makes bad bricklayers good, and good ones fast.
