Hello Gina, great question. I been one since 1963 and would like to know also. I know your better on a computer than me, so would you google it and get back to me at clcbrickman@gmail.com Now if you would like to know about the Masonry Business, please go to brickcertification.com and read all the links, and download the FREE BOOK, THE SECRETE OF SQUARING UP BUILDINGS. You also sound very enterprising, so please also check out youbethebossbrickblockstonecontractor.com
Thank you for asking
PS To put in my 2 cents worth on why bricklayers, stonemasons are called masons. I have always heard that up till about 30 years ago, it has always been a Secretive Trade, like the Fishermen of Hawaii were a few hundred years ago. Please let me know when you find out.
