Hi all, I’m building a 6sm brick strong room on top of a new slap under the house and have some questions. How long after the slab is poured can I start laying brick on it? What kind of brick would be suitable, I was thinking of the strongest solid brick available. I think it’s a red compressed one? Do I need to add damp provention DPC between a low level of brick work. (The slap has moisture retention plastic under it). I will have very little room for the roof between the house timber floor, I was thinking of using some sheet steel for this and securing it with cement and a couple of steel cross beams, good idea? Any thoughts and ideas are greatly appreciated. Cheers Max
