Bricklaying is more than a building method. It is a craft, one that delivers exceptional results when done correctly. The material suffices for many projects that you may want to take on in your home. From building walls to granny flats and exterior paving, brick's qualities always live up to the standards expected of them. The material is low maintenance and weatherproof, an endearing attribute that helps brick stand the test of time.
I had to save for many years to buy my first home. When I did finally put in an offer, it was for a property which was old and needed a lot of repair work. I didn’t have a lot of money to pay contractors to carry out the work, so my partner and I had to teach ourselves how to replace damaged flooring, repair the roof and to install drywall. It took many months, but we now live in a beautifully restored house. I love the feeling of getting in from work, walking through the door and knowing that I own this house. I decided to start a blog to help other people who are restoring their homes.
