In the woods....with bricklaying

The bricklaying has commenced after an initial hiccup...

We have a new site supervisor and it seems the previous one did not communicate a change in mortar joints from flush to rolled. A quarter of a side wall was erected when we noticed and communicated the error to the no name building company. It wasnt a problem, the wall that had been laid was simply pulled down and laid again!

We made the change based on Austral's recommendation that Expressions Blackstone is best suited to a rolled joint which contradicted the No Name Building Company Admin Person recommendation.  The more experts we spoke to said rolled is the best joint......

Here is a pic of the facade.

  1. Hi Superwoman, Your house is looking great! The bricks look really good and I agree with you, the rolled joint does suit your brick.
