As most to make masonry units

In any shop of construction materials or in the market it is possible to buy the special blocks used for construction of the building. However it is not obligatory to buy construction stone at all, it can be made independently.

It is required to you

  • - sheet metal plate;
  • - cement and chip plate;
  • - cement;
  • - sand;
  • - haydite;
  • - tape measure;
  • - pencil;
  • - tree;
  • - abrasive paper;
  • - hammer;
  • - nails;
  • - bucket;
  • - shovel;
  • - rule.


1. In advance determine the desirable sizes of future masonry unit. The most widespread and most popular size: 400х200х200 millimeters. Such construction stone not too heavy, but at the same time wall thickness can equal 200 or 400 mm (it depends on personal preferences).

2. For future masonry units it is necessary to design forms. It is desirable to use cement and chip plate 10 mm thick and sheet metal plate (2-3 mm). The form for stone can also be hammered together from tree, sanded up from within.

3. Make form on one or several blocks (it will accelerate process of production of construction stone). The blocks manufactured by the hands can be with cavities or corpulent (depending on personal preferences) that influences design of drain form.

4. For "cold concrete" prepare solution for blocks from cement and sand (proportion 1:4), and for "warm concrete" - from cement, haydite and sand in the ratio 1:4:1. Then fill with "raw materials" block form half. Stamp solution (it is possible to use shovel shank) and only after that add form with missing "raw materials".

5. Level upper surface of future block the construction rule, that is remove this tool excess solution. In thirty-forty minutes accurately remove the block from form, and in it create new construction stone.

6. For full hardening of solution the blocks carefully transport to the special place protected from the sun and rain. Completely blocks will harden in twenty four hours.
