PART C - PLANNING THE CONCRETE-BLOCK WALLS
You should lay out concrete-block walls to make maximum use of full- and half-length blocks, since
this minimizes cutting and fitting blocks on the job.
2-7. Economical Construction. The most economical concrete-block walls are made of standard
stretcher and corner blocks (Figure 2-3).
Figure 2-3. Standard blocks
To estimate how many full- and half-size blocks are required, plan the length and height of the wall, the
width and height of the openings, and the wall area between doors, windows and corners (Figure 2-4).
