Dumped in my driveway were two very large dump trailers-full of
masonry and dirt. The debris came from a portion of
building that was tore down in town.
Of the huge amount of debris were salvaged 2 types of brick; all
were solid brick with the exception of about 100 figure 8
This is the view from outside the wash area of the wall before
grouting. ***NOTE: The brick are referred to as "slump"
brick. These are not hot-fired brick and therefore are not
uniform by any means. There are sagging sides, bumped out faces,
and possess other deformities. These particular brick, like the
solid brick used in the main walls were also laid
uncleaned. However, unlike the solid brick on the main
walls which only had up to 1/2" existing mortar still intact, these
brick possessed even more!
In other words, the brick are impossible to lay true so the weaving in
and out of the vertical joints is inevitable. These brick
are all laid rowlock fashion (on their faces horizontally making the
wall approximately 8inches thick.
This is the shower-side of the wall, grouted but not yet cured
The wall will lighten when it dries out in a few days.
The sink will be about 2 feet higher in this location.
Marble seat to go where the three brick are sitting and will have
about a 2 inch overhang.
Experimenting with different lighting.
This one fails to be impressive.
Tied in a knot hanging light.
This might look better when the back wall is up higher.
Now I'm off to find something green.
