I have always loved houses that have earthy looks. Houses with exposed bricks have fascinated me. For long, I have been imagining living in such a house. Now, that I’m closer to the dream, I’d like to make it happen.
We bake our own hand-made bricks in our farm but they cannot be used for exposed walls. For cemented walls, they are quite good but not for exposed ones. Hence, looking outside.
The wire-cut bricks are usually machine made. They are compressed and hence much stronger and heavier. More importantly, they have sharp edges which are essential for a good looking exposed brick wall.
However, I’m having difficulty in sourcing good grade Wire-Cut bricks. The best ones are either available in Kerala or in Karnataka. The travel costs tend to be prohibitive.
Do you know anyone who makes these wire-cut bricks in Tamilnadu? Preferably somewhere closer to Chennai or Tindivanam. Alternatively, any reference to an architect or a builder who might have a lead would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help. I can be reached at 9841597744 and Kiruba(@)Kiruba.com.
