I had not, oddly, considered buying used bricks. But some resourceful friends of mine [who are rubbing off on me] are one step smarter. Buy used bricks? Scoff. How about free used bricks? Today I called a guy with an add online, getting rid of bricks. I now have 374 very cool bricks.The brick grill and outdoor kitchen project just got a big push forward on my agenda. Free is good.
374 Bricks on the Wall
My recent obsession with some impending wine making has been temporarily sidetracked by yet another project. Last winter I spent many a night debating my needs and the design for a future brick wood/charcoal grill to adorn my future outdoor kitchen. I eventually settled on a design. But the time and budget weren’t there. I was looking for a brick with some character, some patina, and had only really looked to brick manufaturers who fill that niche. Got a little tired, spent money elsewhere [wine cellar], and the project got shelved.
