Interior Brick Wall


We have a 15×15 Interior wall and would like to use exposed brick, We have stained concrete floor 2×6 walls (This is new construction)
We would like to use real brick or Pavers and split them in half due to the weight and to go further. Any suggestions to install such as Backerboard and Tie-ins?

Even 'half bricks' up 15' vertical is going to be a massive amount of weight that may require additional support underneath. In addition, splitting bricks in half is no easy task. You're going to end up paying a whole lot in labor to do that.

Instead, you'd want to use a brick veneer. Which is 'real' brick but very thin:

They go on essentially like you would tiles. The other benefit compared to 'half bricks' is that you won't have to mortar the joints to the same extent to make it look right.
