Our Masonry Walls

You may recall that we have metal stud exterior walls. Here is how the exterior masonry wall is constructed and attached. The glass board (no paperboard) is drilled and screwed into the metal stud.
Upon that the 2 inch insulation board is attached with hangers that are also drilled into the metal studs.
The hangers have clip ends that will allow the masonry hooks to tie into them.
In this photo below you can see the masonry wall sits two inches off of the insulation board and is hung or "clipped" into the hanger pins.
Block is added and row by row our masonry block walls are constructed.
