Question

Modern Long Brick


I'm in the middle of a major remodel on my house and I'm trying to find out if anyone knows where I can find some longer (think bricks stretched lengthwise) rather than just the standard brick.

I've asked friends, family, and colleagues but no one seems to know.

My house is going to be very mid-century modern (right now it's a mid-century traditional) so I don't want the standard brick to rebrick it with and I phase I of the project will be ready for brick in about 1 month.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Try calling Masonary supply yards. Asking friends and relatives about bricks makes no sense to me.

You are looking for Roman brick, they are normally in the area of 4Wx2-1/4Hx12L.
