Week 11 – Site progress!

The third week of brick laying has entailed the last of the ground floor external bricks at the front of the house, and then blockwork continued!

The brickies have also completed our exposed brick wall in the kitchen! Its so strange having a finished internal wall, and its beautiful. We decided to go with the same bricks as the external, and add in some of the painted white bricks to make them look a little more reclaimed….

More decisions as well in week 11, we have chosen the size of our stone heads and colour. If you aren’t aware and having stone cills and heads there are different size options for the heads. The cills are always 2 bricks high, however 2 or 3 bricks high can be chosen for the heads. We had a good chat with our brickies and decided to go with two high so that there is brick between the head and the roof, luckily we have neighbours who have both options for us to look at rather than trying to imagine how it would look

Week 12 should see more internal blockwork and the fireplace!!! Andy’s artist impression of what it should like….
