Back Hoe Excavating equipment with a digging bucket on one end and a two-part movable arm. Typically attached to a tractor or front end loader. Backhoes are used for many things ie. construction, small demolitions, light transportation of building materials, powering building equipment, digging holes/excavating, landscaping, breaking asphalt, and paving roads).

Standard sizes of Bricks depend on the
The typically used size is
Modular 3 ½” W x 7 ½” L x 2 ¼” H
You can special order any size you would like at extra cost.
However there is such a wide range of sizes if
you shop around you will find what you want.
Bricks are very versatile & can be made to look however
you would like.
The typical other sizes available vary
from 3” to 3 5/8” width
from 7 ½” to 11 5/8” length
from 1 5/8” to 3 5/8” height
These are not a standard brick They are brick pavers 6 ¼” W x 9 ½” L & 6 ¼” W x 6 ¼” These are much larger than any standard sized 5 5/8” W x 11 5/8” L These are actually a Modular brick size of 3 1/3” W x 7 ½” L x 2 ¼” H on the Standard Brick Size Chart However, they have added some nice details.

Set of legal requirements or restrictions to ensure a minimum standard of health and safety in buildings. Since I live in a Studio Apt. my bedroom is also my living room, therefore the front door is my “Means of Egress” that meets the code requirements of at least one 3’ opening as a means of exit to the exterior, it also meets the requirement of NOT having a double keyed deadbolt.
The Stairs meet the Code Requirements of a minimum of 10” treads and maximum of 7 ¾” risers, as well as meeting the code for having an exterior landing.
Tread 11” wide - Riser 7 ¾” high

Concrete Masonry Units
CMU is a block of hardened concrete, with or without hollow cores, in the form of a block, designed to be laid in the same manner as brick or stone. Also designed so 3 rows of brick equals the height of 1 CMU Block.
Typical dimensions 8” high x 16” long with different widths (depth)
2 different sized CMU Standard 8”H x 16”L x 12” W The other 12”H x 16”L x 12”W
Decorative Concrete Masonry Unit

Some of these components are the Power pole, transformer for above ground service, or underground supply has a transformer box on the ground. The other items are service head, meter, service panel, duplex receptacle where the user plugs in there item’s electrical cord to be able to use the item.
Meters Electric Meter Measures power usage Duplex Receptacle Appliance hook-up to electric circuit Light Switch To turn electricity on to a light Power pole & transformer Converts the several thousand volts to 110/220-volt for customer use Service Panel Where electric service comes into the building, Typically with circuit breakers for safety Service Head Its me I promise
