I've been a remodeling carpenter since 1987, self employed. Getting ready to build our house finally.The house has a frost wall. Intend to use 12" block and mortar but was going to parge the foundation with surface bonding mortar as well. So, 2 questions. Is this overkill, I have #2 rebar every 4ft on cntr, 2 pilasters in the long walls (42') and 1 in each end (28'). Should I parge both sides of the frost wall portion. And the video of the guy one arming 12's is inspirational. Wish I could tell Thank You personally, one craftsman to another. Thanks for the site, much to learn.
