Distinguishing different types of brick in Architectural (design) elevations?
Aug 21, 2007 by Ghan | Posted in Drawing & Illustration
Hey people, I've checked my personal library (of all of 10 books, hehe, I'm working on it ;) ) for suggestions on how to show contrasting brick types in a standard hand drawn elevation, and I can't find anything. Presently I'm showing the distinction by using different bricklaying patterns (that is, I'm using Flemish Cross Bond for one and English Bond for the other type), and while it works it's not really what I want for the building - I want them to be different <I>coloured</i> bricks, not differently laid (that is, light beige and dark brown). Not to mention that this method is very time-consuming, and I'm sure you all understand that I have very little! (lol, a 1:200 model , 2x 1:100 section and 1:500 site plan in 2 days - oh god) However, my studio co-ordinator does not want coloured drawings (and I can sympathise - I don't want to draw them!! :)).
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Can different types of brick be used together?
May 30, 2007 by gavira_76 | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs
I have taking the garden wall down because it's falling down & needs to be rebuild. It is made from bricks with indent (I think it's called "frog" indent, which I intend to recycle and use to re-build the wall. But these would not be enough for a new wall though. I have also collected some old, but unused bricks, and they are wire-cut bricks, solid ones, different colour, but I thought I can mix-n-match to get different bricks evenly distributed, without patches of colour.
The question is: can I use these two together in one build? Is there any special mortar that I need and any tips on cleaning reclamed bricks or taking the wall down with minimum damage to the bricks would be appreciated.
BTW - the wall is falling because it is old and have no support pillats at all throughout few houses.
Some of the bricks are different sizes - lengthwise. Maybe I can do some kind of pattern where the size difference would not be an issue and it will look as if it supposed to be this way? Any ideas on the brick wall patterns?
Providing these are both clay bricks there is no problem mixing the two types. However it may be better to lay in a Fletcher bond, using standard mortar.

Compare the durability of different types of flooring Brick /marble/granite/terrazzo/slate/ceramic/soapstones?

Looking for a durable and long lasting patio floor.
I would avoid marble; it is compressed sand with a polish. It pits and needs extra maintenance to remain beautiful. The other 4 are durable for long life.
