Stripped (4928 TM) by WayneBenedet Stripped (4928 TM) by WayneBenedet
It appears that the brick has been systematically removed, and given that it is no longer on the site, perhaps it has been re-used.

Taken in rural Manitoba, Canada

I have an affinity for the "L" shaped ones, but I like the 3rd story as well on the square ones.

Very nice Wayne.
A few years there were several instances, down in the city, where home owners would come home from work and find the bricks gone from parts of their house. Thieves were carrying them away and selling them for a nice sum. It must have been quite a surprise for those poor people. Who would ever have thought that someone would steal the brick off your house while you were still living in it. Guess everything is danger of thievery if there's a profit in it. :(

WOW, I think I might have died if that had happened to me. I hope they were able to stop the practice.

Fascinating how they seem to have scavenged materials from it.

I think it is pretty cool. Bricks don't really deteriorate, and when cleaned up, they can be used for something new. I have seen recycled bricks on a house and it looks really good.

It's a good idea since it saves money and saves all that material from going to waste. I bet it looks really pretty when reused on new homes.

yes, it makes a new house look older, which a lot of people seem to like.

so I understand David. A friend of mine used them on his new house. He said they cost more than hew ones. But they do have a very good look to them.

yes it is. Most often I am alone, so if anything was to happen,I could be in big trouble. However when I am with someone, and the house is accessible and safe, I will wander through, but I always try to get permission first.

That is hard to say Sophia, but given that they have all been cleaned up, I would bet on it. There is a good market for used bricks, and they are apparently more expensive than new ones.

Probably better made than the new ones!!! lol Thus, easy to understand both salvagers and scavengers
