The crew came in today to finish the trim work around the eaves of the house. The same crew is putting up the cedar shake look vinyl trim on the front. The color matches really well, don’t you think?

All that the bricklayers lack is finishing this high peak on the west side and that area above the garage doors you can see in the preceding picture. The outside work should be finished soon.

Oh, they are also going to brick around the chimney. We chose to use brick instead of stone after we found out you can get matching bricks called “thin bricks.”

They are actually the exact same brick that we used on the wall. They just sliced a 1/2 inch thick slab off of the brick to make it much lighter. That sawing also makes it more expensive, less brick, more money. Go figure!
