Queen vs engineer brick?
Considering using Queen size brick instead of engineer=oversize brick.
Queen is same style,width and height but 1 inch less thick than engineer(oversize);
Queen bricks are less money per brick and use same # of bricks per sq ft of wall.
Would we use less motar with queen?
Would insulation be as good given the queen is less thick so wall would be one inch thinner?
I know when viewed directly face-on you cannot see any difference between the two sizes of brick, but how about around windows or on corners?
Any other issues or pros and cons?
