Building A Well House #2: Dry Stack Cement Block

This is the second post on our well house project
we looked at the foundation and got up to the first course of block.

Above we have dry stacked the block
 and prepared the form for a 4" bond beam at the midsection 
at which time we will also fill all the cores in the block up to that point.

This mid section bond beam is a bit of overkill
 but I needed to size the footer forms to the bond beam dimensions anyway,
and the forms make it easier to fill the cement block cores with concrete
much like a funnel.
