Default Job From Hell

Here is my latest finished project the *shudder* double story house, every time I do a double I always say "never again" this one was particularly painful as we had to redo and redo the scaffold as the licensed scaffolders just couldnt get their heads around it from a bricklaying perspective.
Its black bricks and its so ugly, but the owner was happy...


The house fills most of the block of land.

Black brick? Why would anyone even make something that ugly??

It's enough to get a picture of your house plastered all over the internet!

For some reason the black bricks are very popular, not environmentally friendly as the absorb more heat from the sun...

I did a black brick house with black mortar some years ago, it looked quite depressing.
