Bricklaying Question

Support pillars

I want to build a 6" width breeze block wall 65" high 87' long. How often do I need to build a support pillar. Can I put the pillar every 9'

Hi ilkcl a 9'' pillar every 9' would give you more than enough support in fact for a 6'' wall 10' to 10.5' spacing would be absolutely fine hope this was of some help Regards Jude

9 foot spacings would be ample and structural sound. If you are still not keen, whilst in the footings, fit re-bar that would connect to re-bar in pillars and concrete
