Private Residence - Handmade Caversham Bricks
This impressive two storey house in Perth's southern suburbs was inspired by the sweeping American architecture of 'Gone With the Wind'.
Houses this size are often rendered, but this home demonstrates how well face bricks can work in providing a unique look to a personalise a home.
Face bricks have many advantages over render, including huge financial and maintenance savings that stem from having to repair and re-paint render (approximately $7000 every seven years).
Clay face bricks are colour fast, and never require re-finishing or painting to keep them looking good.
Midland Bricks' Handmade range is full of character. Each brick is unique and distinctive in its own right due to the firing process, which creates an age-old hand-thrown appearance.
