Hi I hope you maybe able to help
I am building a garage 6m x7m double skin with tiled pitched roof

Simply Build It

I usually use 100mm width single skin solid concrete blocks with piers when building a garage.
Or you can lay them flat giving you a solid 225mm wall.
for the garden wall the 100mm solid concrete is better.
