At the top, a full brick placed on the left side and one of the divided blocks on the right, leaving the sides are touching each other and also with the first bricks. This is the first layer of the brick fireplace.
Start with the second layer of bricks to put a half brick in the upper left corner. Place a full brick on the top right, so that the ends match. The bricks should be opposite to the layer below them so that the joints do not coincide. Place full bricks on the left and right just about complete bricks under them. These joints must match.
