Brick makes any building look beautiful, of course, but face brick isn't just for an added touch of beauty. Face brick is the term used for brick that isn't needed just for the structure, but also for look, energy efficiency and value. At the time this book was published, face brick was offered in a great range of color, from the lightest creams and greys, through buffs, reds, greens, browns, maroons, and on down to a gun-metal black. Naturally, this wide choice of color and textures available produced increasing numbers of colorful, distinctive homes under the skill of architects and builders. English style, bungalow, Italian style, Dutch Colonial, Georgian, Colonial, Mediterranean, and French style are represented in this hard to find pattern book. This is the first time we've offered this title.
