Week 8: Brick by Brick; Our Boutique Build – Airlie 38

So Week 8 was all about the bricks…  I’m loving our colour choice which is great, and once those red ones are rendered it will look even better.  Our delivery of bricks has been staggered, as expected, due to being in a built up area there isn’t much space to put them!!!  So once the first drop was laid the brick layers had a couple of days off as there was nothing for them to do.  On Friday I saw more bricks had been delivered and on Monday of Week 9 they were on site working!

The bricks are called Indulgence Praline – I can’t remember if they are Cat 2 or Cat 3 to be honest, but they were an upgrade.

So here are some photos….

No idea what you call these, but I'm assuming the bricks go on top to create the features

Has anyone used Praline in their brick choice?

Has anyone hated their brick choice?

  1. Hello
    I have been following your build on Instagram and absolutely love the Praline bricks you have chosen. I am building the Barcelona with Boutique and was wondering if you knew what colour mortar you used with the Praline? Off white? White? Natural Grey?
    I’d love them to turn out just like yours so any info would be really helpful.
    Thank you and congratulations on your beautiful home – it is stunning!!
    Carmen

    • Hi Carmen – The Praline bricks are just stunning, still love them. I will have to check for you the mortar colour – I do remember that it was an up-grade if that helps.
