Bricks and mortar

So pleased to see the brickwork get underway this week! Love the colour! The bricks are PGH Espresso and they’re just what we wanted. They work nicely with the Ironstone Colourbond roof and Surfmist guttering and fascia.

I am so happy the bricklayers started at the front – really helps us to visualise how the completed house will look. The garage door will be dark too – in Ironstone – but once the mortar dries off, the off-white should complement the guttering/fascia nicely and provide a good contrast to the dark bricks and roller door. If the front of the house ends up looking too dark, we’ll use a light render over some of the brickwork to add more contrast.

Photos from today – they’re a little on the dark side as I got there just as the sun was setting.
