Some more progress today, I filled it with concrete, tomorrow I can get a go at the brickwork.
The plum tree blossom was falling as I was doing it.

The brick with the diamond frog is one I found out in the bush, its one of Sydneys earliest bricks from about 1820/30.

I like it when someone takes a collectable piece of history and builds it into a new structure.
There wouldn't be too many people who even knew that bricks had ever been made with a diamond frog, let alone seen one.
Had a mate who built a new and conventional brick veneer house, but included the front door and frame from the old family home. Its a very small part of the whole house, but he chose the bricks with care and that little piece of history really makes the place special.

Ive got a few more oddities built in too.
One is animal prints in the brick, the other is the imprint of a workers knitted jumper in the wet clay.
Ill take some pics tomorrow.

Life got in the way today so I didnt do any work on the fireplace, but I saw that the wildlife was willing to give me a hand.....

What a glorious day, high teens and not a breath of wind, so some progress was made.

Tomorrow Ill take the chimney up further past the roof line as high as I can reach off the scaffolding.
I even tried the fireplace out with a few pieces of newspaper and it draws like a byooty.
