I've been working on the facade, which will be mostly brick. The chimneys still need quite a bit more work before I can start cladding; and while the materials for the porch have arrived I'm not ready for them yet! I did a tiny bit of cladding to show my family what I meant by "egg carton bricks"; the chimney designs are based on local architecture. The window frames are dry fitted to help me place things; I'm about to take them out again and finish them properly as I simultaneously cut out another few (thousand) bricks. Hooray!
|The arches are going to be clad with brick as well.|
|The upper part of each chimney is going to have cool recessed channels.|
