    Default Bricking around windows

    Hi all,

    How do bricklayers ensure, when bricking a house, that there is a flush connection between the brickwork and the wall openings on the house's exterior?

    Does this come from the architect/drafty ensuring that any length from a corner to an opening and between openings is the exact length of a multiple of 230mm (if using standard brick)?

    What happens in the instance that a course of brick can't finish flush to an opening? It always seems to be flush...

    Cheers

    They split bricks if smaller sections are required.

    Often there are sill tiles or bricks set for the bottom of windows.
