Ashlar Facing Masonry

In Ashlar Facing Masonry, the faces of stone are rough tooled, and chamfered and the stones are provided in face work only. The backing may be made in brick, concrete, or rubble as desired. The composite construction reduces the cost of work appreciably. The height of the course is never kept less than 20 cm. and the width of each stone is about 1½ times its height. The bed joints of all the stones arc dressed perfectly true and square. For walls upto 75 cm in thickness, the bond stones should extend for the full thickness of the wall and for thicker walls, the bond stones should overlap each other by 15 cm.
