Brick House

 Right after my last post, many pallets of brick arrived.
I got so excited to think that the brick would now be layed.
It's been a slow process...

Day one.
The front walk way design is determined.  Herringbone.

Day two. The front walk was bricked, but two weeks later, the stairs still are only three steps completed.

However, the "driveways" in front of the garage doors were layed.
I'm loving my brick!

 In the concrete world we now live in, brick is a welcome relief.

Meanwhile, the brickwork has once again stalled.
Yes, the "driveways" are layed, but no grout.
That was a week ago.


Pin It!

Delores! My heart leaps when I check in and see that you've posted. I love the brick, the colors are absolutely perfect. Speaking of color, do you remember the name of the green base color you had your cabinets painted in at the other house? Anyway, hang in there, perfection (or as close as we humans can get) takes time!

EXCITING, but I totally understand how anxious you are to see this part finished, it is going to be spectacular and so worth the wait!! So Happy for you!! They are making some good progress on our new little cottage too, and we are enjoying each step but another month in and we will be chomping at the bit to get in.....http://goodlifeofdesign.blogspot.com/2015/07/our-new-house-has-its-front-facade.html

Oh, I love the trades. They come in and do a bit of work to get things going, then they go off to another client and do some work. It keeps us all on the hook with them.

Delores: When we were in Rome in 2008, we visited a church called "Quattri Santi Coronati" not far from the Coloseum. The church is designated a Unesco World Heritage site. Anyway, at the time, they were repaying the courtyard with bricks in a herringbone pattern very similar to yours. When I saw your brickwork it immediately reminded me of this charming church. It's going to be so beautiful! It'll be worth every moment of aggravation you are now experiencing. Hang in there!

I love seeing your story unfold. If my reno isn't moving along, I can always look to other for inspiration in the process. I can't wait to see every detail that comes along. Enjoy the ride!!!
