Aged look. - I would first line to say that this looks great. I have an enormous amount of reclaimed water struck brick and I was going to veneer one of my basement walls with them. Looking to achieve a look not unlike the project you have on here. Did the brick mason add color/dye to some cement batches? It appears that sections of wall have black or very dark joints. Curious if he used 3 blends. It appears that way to me.
Great job!

Thank you for your comments! This wall is an existing interior masonry bearing wall, constructed with the original building in the 1880s of Chicago common brick. It was covered by furring and gyp board for many years until we exposed it for the new owners. The general contractor washed and tuck-pointed the brick where necessary, but for the most part it was left in the condition we found when we uncovered it. It is a work of art in itself.

The walls are Chicago common brick, also known as "Old Chicago" brick, made in chicago from the late 1800s to the 1970s.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"It may sound intuitive to provide natural light to any home, but city homes are especially difficult to manage in this respect due to the proximity of neighboring buildings that block sunlight," says Goulette. His team's solution was to install nine skylights, strategically placed to saturate dark portions of the house with sunlight.
