A ton of bricks.

Okay, so maybe I didn’t buy a whole ton. Maybe half a ton. Okay, 180 bricks. The brickyard had “Old Chicago” bricks, which were taken from demolished buildings in Chicago. Those bricks were 80 cents each. They also had some bricks made in Mexico that are meant to resemble the Chicago bricks. These were somewhat cheaper. Only 50 cents each.BrickStack

Here’s what they look like closeup.

Nice and rustic. That should blend well with my rustic bricklaying skills. Hopefully the patina on these bricks will hold up. Just rinsing them with the hose removed a little of the color and sand that provided the antique look.
