The outside of the house is proceeding on schedule.  I was surprised at how quickly the brick work got completed once it started.  The brick crew came on a Saturday to lay the first few rows around the house.  That enabled an inspection of those rows Monday morning.  By the end of the day Tuesday, the work was complete.

Brick color can vary from batch to batch.  In our case, the brick was a noticeably deeper red color than we were expecting based on the little sample.

The crew completed the first few layers on a Saturday morning so that they could be inspected Monday morning.
By the end of the day Monday, they had completed about 5 feet, which completed the back side of the house.

Around the porch, some of the bricks are installed diagonally, creating a slight lip,
