Stroll Down Memory Lane-Brick

It’s time to take another stroll down memory lane and check out where we were on our house building process 3 years ago…

3 Years Ago This Week:  We installed the brick on the front of the house…

We chose Alliance brick in Pearl.  The brick is a mortar-less brick system.  We’re working on a post about why we chose this brick/how we installed it to share with you soon!  (Long story: coming soon. Short story: We wanted to install the brick ourselves but we aren’t experienced brick layers so we opted for the mortar-less system.)  Today, you get pictures…

I don’t remember for sure what is going on in the picture above but it probably has to do with Nate’s dad explaining to me that I needed to carry a large pile of bricks from one side of the yard to the other.  It was an evil game Nate and his dad would play with me.  I’m still not sure the bricks actually needed to be moved…notice how I appear to be paying close attention…

There you have it.  The week our house got mortar-less brick.
Who’s going to lose sleep this week-end waiting for the brick post??? Try to hang in there.  It’s going to be at least a week because next week I am inviting some awesome bloggers over to share their favorite projects with you!! Get excited!


  1. Wow, I've never heard of mortar-less bricks - but they ended up looking really nice! I suppose it's easier to keep everything perfectly lined up and square when there's no mortar to be dealing with, right? Hmm, I have no plans to build a house in my near future, but I'll still file this knowledge away just in case. :)

  2. I *might* not loose sleep over this one...(c: But it turned out lovely! I'm such a sucker for a brick home, they are so gorgeous!

  3. hahaha-evil brick moving. Have a great weekend. :)

  4. Wow, I've never even heard of mortar-less bricks. Looks great!

  6. Finally it's starting to look solid.

  7. Well I continue to be in complete awe of you 2. You put your own brick on your house!!!!! Who does that? Besides you. Amazing:)

  8. It looks great! I've never heard of mortar-less brick. But then again I am learning all kinds of new things when it comes to housebuilding lately!

  9. Okay so now that I know you guys did this all yourselves, I'm just even more impressed by this post. Morterless brick and all. And that pic of you and your FIL just cracks me up :)
