Enter a value for all fields

The **Bricks for a House **calculator computes the number of standard U.S. bricks or blocks are needed for four walls of a house or other rectangular building.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**L**) Length of Building - (
**W**) Width of Building - (
**H**) Height of Walls - (
**wA**) Area of Windows - (
**dA**) Area of Doors - (
**bL**) Brick or Block Length - (
**bH**) Brick or Block Height

**Brick or Block in a House (nB): ** The calculator returns the number of brick or block needed for the wall of the house.

The bricks for a house calculator estimates the number of brick or block needed for four walls based on the dimensions of the wall and the size of the brick or block, and the amount of non-brick space taken up by windows and doors. This calculation is for a block wall or brick fascia wall which implies that wall is one unit (brick or block) deep. The user identifies the height of the walls and the length and width of the building. From this, the calculator estimates the number of brick or block for the four walls. The calculator then reduces the number of brick or blocks associated with the area of the windows and doors.

Brick and block unit sizes include: brick(standard), brick(paver), block(4x16), block(4x18), block(5x18), block(8x8), block(8x12), block(8x16), block(8x18), block(8x24). These are chosen because they are the most commonly used. Brick and block unit sizes includes the most commonly used brick and block sizes in the United States.

**Bricks or Blocks for a Wall**: Computes the number of bricks or blocks needed for a wall based on the wall's dimensions and the size of the bricks or block.**Brick Block Wall Cost**: Computes the number of brick or block needed for a wall based on the wall dimensions and the brick or block size, and then applies a cost per unit to the number to estimate the total cost of bricks or blocks.**Mortar Requirement for Wall**: Computes the amount of mortar for a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the size of the brick or block used.**Bricks for a House**: Estimates the number of bricks needed for a four walled structure (e.g., house) based on the building dimensions, the size of the bricks or blocks and the square footage dedicated to doors and windows.**Cost of Bricks for a House**: Estimates the number of bricks for a four walled structure and applies a unit price per brick or block to estimate the total cost.**Block for a Foundation**: Computes the number of blocks needed for the walls of a foundation based on the dimensions of the foundation and the size of the blocks.**Cost of Blocks for a Foundation**: Estimates the number of block for the wall of a foundation based on the dimensions of the foundation and the size of the blocks, and then applies the unit price per block to provide cost estimate.**Mortar Needed for Foundation**: Estimates the amount of mortar needed for the cinder block walls of a foundation based on the dimensions of the walls, size of blocks, and thickness of the mortar joint.**Bricks per Row**: Computes the number of bricks in a row based on the length of the row, the size of the bricks and the width of the mortar joint.**Bricks High**: Computes the number of rows of bricks to achieve a height based on the height and the size of the bricks.**Custom Stone in a Wall:**Computes the number of masonry units (stone, block or stone) in a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the dimensions of the units and the thickness of the mortar joints. It also returns the number of rows needed and the number of stone per row.**Concrete, Rebar and Forms for Wall:**Computes the volume of concrete, amount of rebar and the surface area of forms for a concrete wall.**Price of Delivered Concrete:**Computes the price of delivered concrete based on the volume, price per cubic yard, pumping cost, delivery distance, and mileage.**Water Needed for Concrete:**Compute the amount of water needed to make a volume of concrete.
