Brick House

They aren't using brick as much as they used too, I suppose because of cost. We have a home that is mostly brick, with some fake Tudor style on the back. After looking up some information about Tudor, it turns out that the English had to use limited wood for fuel, thus were left with very little for construction and had to put plaster between beams of wood. Go figure. Someone must have liked how it looked to be using it fake construction purposes today.
