The Wood-Masonry Line

Toronto_house

This house on Beverly Street in Toronto is another variation of the masonry wall / wood frame combination.  In this case, brick walls run all of the way up to the eaves on the side elevations, but stop at the floor line of the second floor on the front.  A wood wall is inserted between two brick wall tabs that extend out beyond the face of the wall below. Several of our residential projects, including the rowhouses at 557 East Second Street and the unbuilt First and First (shown) also have masonry walls on the ground floor and wood walls above.
