Bricks are complicated!

February 4th

We went back to the showroom on Friday and looked at tan bricks.  I forgot my camera but did take it when we went looking at houses again.

I don't know if we're that close to picking a brick, but we're running out of time.  If I had to pick today (and it were just up to me), I'd pick the Faulkston.  I think Stan is leaning towards a tan brick, though.  It makes it harder that we don't know the names of the bricks we looked at on houses and that pictures don't always capture the color right.

Brick 76: We don't know what color it is, but Stan liked it. Brick 86 This one is called Dover Grey.  We didn't like it as well in person as in the showroom.

I never knew it would be so hard to select a brick, but it is.  After picking out several bricks in the showroom, we were sent to go out looking at houses to see the bricks in person.  (Or, is that "in house"?)

"In house", we found this one to be too worn looking.

We drove by houses and couldn't find some of the samples, but here's what Faulkston looks like on the bank:

And then, just to be ornery, Stan decided he liked this tan brick house which wasn't like anything we looked at in the brick showroom.
