    It looks like Frank is laying a header course and grouting the cavity solid. (with mortar). Also looks
    like you will have to strip the rest of the formwork to continue the wall up. The masonry may seem slow and tedious, but you will be done in no time. I don’t think the brick will actually support much weight since the load from the big stones above will be transmitted through the pillars/jambs. From what I can see, the brickwork looks good. Probably no need to tool the joints to perfection. Go ahead and take the night off. You have both earned it.

      Good eye. We are trying to make the brickwork match the existing brickwork. The masons didn’t tool it at all because it was all parged at one time.

    That looks great and you’d never know it wasn’t original.
