4000 bricks in 2 days - my hands hurt just thinking about it.

Thanks for the all the great advice. This is a great site!

I wasn't aware of a mortar bag. I think that will help and picked one up yesterday.
I forgot about the gloves.
I've got two bags of heatstop50 to get started. Well it's off to build the arch form and start laying some brick!
