Brick interior/exterior - Hi- I really like the brick used on the interiors and exteriors of some of the homes featured here. Is it a thin Brick product? And, how did you achieve the whitewashed look? is it mortar smeared, or a wash? Great job on all homes!

The brick is a full brick sale we used on the exterior and the mortar is set sloppy after which a very thin mortar mix is painted on to achieve the desired look. In this application the bricks have to be supported also known as structural. You can cut the bricks in half and apply them like tile I do not recommend that method for longevity.
