5 years ago Scott and I meticulously demoed our old 1-car garage (more the size of a shed) to save the brick for an eventual house renovation. The 80 year old brick is now in its final resting place. We left out the bricks that had a red tint to them and we turned the bricks around so that the smooth face was out instead of the textured face that used to collect dust. The result is a really clean but classic look.
Once the brick was done we covered up remaining pink waterproofing material with cementitious Hardie Board siding. In this neighborhood most new builds are gray and white stucco so we hope that people appreciate the quality of the materials and the craftmanship that it takes to build a solid home.
