Topic: Hollow Brick Wall thickness for RCC roof

Hello Friends,

I am planning to construct a simple cottage in my backyard.  Most of the work will be done by me.  Your advice is most welcome as I am a new bee in this field. 

Cottage size:
        Length = 13m (3 parallel walls of 13m each).
        Width  = 8m (2 side walls 8m each)
        All walls are double brick(hollow) (23cm) wide.
       The distance between 3 parallel walls is 3.6m
       The 13m long centre wall will be manuplated  by beams create rooms.
 Please seen rough sketch in the attached file.

Could you please advise me if
1. the hollow clay brick (grade 1) walls of width 23cm is enough to support the RCC slab.
2.  As the length is long (13m) do I need to include pillars and provide support beams.
Any opinion will be most appreciated.

Regards,
Gerard
