Evening all. Just done all the block work for an extension. Quick question, where do you put the belcast bead.. is it placed on 1 or 2 in the diagram.. stepped tray dpc and then there is the 100mm dpc on the course above.. I presume it’s on the lower on which is the tray as if it’s on the higher one it would look completely stupid on the house..

You need bead @ floor dpc( not tray )

Yes has weep vents just above and coming out at 2s level the inside of the tray comes way above floor level

I’d put the drip bead slightly above the sill and return into the frame. Anything below that bead then is not your problem

this is my block work and if you put a level on it, it is bang on plumb and square. Corners have been hacked off blockwork now as rolling the corners to be rounded on the render with no beads as it is an extension to the whole front of the cottage and has to keep that look for the finish
