Fantastic Brickwork A Sign Of Real Skill

I live on an attractive housing development – built in the early 2000s.  There was a bit of  resurgence in the confidence of house building and we were happy to buy into this selection of 4 and 5 bedroomed detached family homes.   One thing that appealed was that although the very nature of housing estates indicates that more than one house has to be built, unlike after the war, when mass house building was carried out through emergency needs, today’s estates could have some finess and attractive points.  The superb brickwork is one feature.  The side wall of the house behind my back garden is a true work of art.  If I’d not seen them actually laying it row upon row, all neatly and very quickly, I would honestly have thought it had been manufactured in one huge block and then cut to shape!  There is no ugly bit sticking out or mishapen areas – all the bricks are from the same colour batch and not a single patch of white salty deposit has appeared since 2001.   Hurrah
