    I am going to be nice to our builders and provide coursing blocks and where possible keep to 75mm modular spacing on walls and between windows and doors etc so as to keep block cutting to a minimum.

    Obviously the best arrangement is to have alternate courses offset by half a block (225mm) on each course. But sometimes it makes more sense for my walls to have the bonding offset by one third of a block (150mm). Is a one third block offset considered bad practice or significantly weaker for the shorter wall lengths.

    For that matter I presume a 75mm course offset is better than a plain stack.

    1/2 is best, 1/3 OK 1/4 nutty. Plain stack a complete no no
