The HC - brick walkway

by brae  

I am getting close to gluing the structure to the landscaping base, so I can start to work on the brick walkway.  Here's the porch already done.

I started by marking a printed grid to match where the porch meets the walkway.

I wanted more herringbone, so I started with a 4.5" by 5" section.

Once that was done, I cut a template for the shape I wanted.

I glued that section to the base board.

I then individually cut the straight brick border.

Then paint....

Then grout was applied before the house was attached to the base.  Easier to work with that way.

While I was at it, I finished the brick corners where the walls join.

Instead of using my usual messy grout application, I needed to be more careful and use a syringe.

Pretty seamless.  :]

And, this is how well you'll see it once the landscaping is done.  haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  :D

This is just so realistic! May I ask the dimensions of the individual bricks? Thanks
