  • The house is coming along nicely, but that explanation makes no sense. The bricks- especially after the mortar was repointed- should be durable enough for the elements, but if they were really worried they could have sprayed them with a clear weathertight sealant. They make products specifically designed for sealing brick.

    I actually noticed that when they repointed this the mortar wasn’t the accurate historic color (it was much too light), which the Historic Review Board is very particular about. Maybe they painted it to avoid getting a stop work or fine.
