Australian Colonial Style Bond

This home showcases a decorative style of bricklaying bond. Commonly known as Colonial Bond or Common bond today.

In colonial architecture, buildings had thicker walls two bricks wide and the brick was laid on its side every 6th course to create greater strength.

Today the style can be replicated in single brick homes for a decorative affect, there was a lot of extra work to be done cutting all the halves, but makes an interesting feature.
