Anyway, I'm nearly done with the walls, but the lumber for the roof has been delayed and will not arrive for another ten days or so. As the photo shows, I still have plenty of brick work to complete, but not enough to fill ten days, which means this side project of mine has hit a snag in terms of expected completion time. I could start plastering walls, but it's usually best to leave that until after the roof is on.
Though the lumber will be new, the bricks for this renovation are reclaimed bricks - the vast majority of which I had sitting around on my property waiting for a project like this. Some of the bricks I have used for the walls are dated from the nineteenth century. The bricks themselves are meant to be plastered over, which helps explain the lack of aesthetic appeal thus far.
