This house is about 21 miles from here, in Dobson NC. Which is good. The bad thing is....It's on a chicken farm

Re: Next Project....


I need to get this one knocked out, cause I have a lot of work waiting on me.

Started it Monday, rained us out Tuesday, worked on it Wednesday, and rained us out today

....off to a slow start.

26,200 oversize on the lot, but they've added a back porch, so it's getting bigger.

Cripes, the house doesn;t look that big. Still just you and 2 other guys laying? How long will that take you? At least there are lots of big walls and not many windows or corners. That one long wall with no windows to the left of the door $$$$$ what dreams are made of

Re: Next Project....


It's just me and the one mason that's been with me so long laying, and my half azz labor.

I'm figuring 4 weeks working time on the house, but I need to pull off in a couple of weeks to lay 2 chimney tops for another contractor.

I'm not to sure the brick count is correct. The GC is the one that figured it. It just doesn't look like it would take that many brick for the house.

But the retaining walls are going to eat up some brick and plus the garage, so maybe he counted right.

John; Thanks for posting the neat pictures. By the way,I spotted no gutters on the house and the bottom 2 ' of wall splashed to heck with clay stains. That could be the kiss of death if it gets on your new wall.



That darn clay splash,as you know,it is the closest thing to impossible to clean off. Have the GC buy you a bunch of straw bales.

Had some on a stone house I did...bottom foot or so is and always will be a dull brown rather than grey I'm afraid. His house was sort of built into a bank of reddish silty sand

I had a job once where the owner of the new house we were siding brought it in the last day after a month of siding in the pouring rain.

He said he didn't want us to get the hay dirty.

Yes thanks for the pictures Brickhook. Very nice work as always, and for me a chance to remember when I worked back in the east.

Re: Next Project....


What do you guys use for the flashing on the brick shelf? No way you all use lead all the way around the house like we would up here?

We use a rubber type flashing. It comes in 12" wide rolls. We flash at the band around the foundation and over the windows and doors.
