Kenny's Brick-thing

Made With Trash

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 brick.




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.

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.
