HI All, I am only new here and will be retiring in the Philippines early next year. One question that I have been trying to find the answer to is and having lots of trouble. I am planning on getting a house built, I have looked at many designs and photos and builds, one thing I don't understand is why is the mortar between concrete blocks so thick, the normal standard is 3/8 inch or 10mm. From what i can see in photos and visits, a lot seem to be 1 inch or more, this to me is very bad, i dont care if wall has rebar and filled with concrete. Is this a practice to use less blocks or is there something I am missing with the way construction is done in the Philippines. Hopefully someone can answer me as unable to find out why. Many Thanks in advance.
