I still am going to build a very low roofed barrel type-ish at this stage, but it could all change...

And I think will need some more rock too.

At the 7 hour stage and when I knocked off for the day.
I am putting a course of bricks around the top to finish it off.
The top is the height of the concrete slab, Ive allowed for some shoulders on both sides at slab height so I can put stuff, like, beer for example.

One side and the front are complete and Ive started down the other side, there is nothing on the back as it backs onto the shed.

Will look impressive once it's all cleaned up. Nice work I'm watching with interest.

Oscar as you know there is an abundance of Bluestone in Melbourne and very cheap.
Try buying sandstone in Sydney they want $20 per piece as against $4 a piece for Bluestone in Melbourne.

Ive gone for the brushed weathered look, Ive brushed it 4 or 5 times already but it wont come to life until I acid wash it.

The bricklayer comes out in me on the 6th course right hand side in the Brushed2 pic, I just cant help it.

With random stone you are not to supposed to get repetitive.

As you can see Ive chucked a few blue burnt bricks into the mix just to be different. (not the quoins (corners))

Very nice I like all the different size blocks with bricks mixed in.
Wish I had the artistic flare (and skill) to try something like that. At this stage I'm just going to add some color and render my base.

I gave the base a quick dilute wash this arvo I know its really to soon seeing as I only laid them yesterday but I wanted to see if Id got the colours right.
I think I did..

The bricks I put in the wall really blend in well and the quoins stand out well too.

Looking really nice. Isn't it annoying to have to do all that work just to get to floor level, when you're itching to get into the build proper.
