    Unique! Brick is a no maintenance finish that goes well with the surroundings and the wood beams and such on the porch. The counters and the bathroom vanity are gorgeous! This is a nice little home, and very pretty.

      Well, I don’t disagree but just to make sure no one gets the wrong idea about using brick, while it is generally true that a well constructed brick structure may last 100 years or longer, but sills, parapets, chimneys, copings, and other elements with more severe weather exposure typically have a significantly shorter service life. Mortar joints may last 25 years before needing repairs, whereas sealants and plastic flashings could require replacement in as few as five years.

      The masonry over time can exhibit cracks, spalls, loose brick, mortar cracks, deteriorated mortar, clogged weeps, vegetative growth, deteriorated sealant, efflorescence and stains, out-of-plumb units, water penetration.

      Along with cleaning or occasionally needing to redo a seal coat to prevent staining and other long term issues as bricks are porous. Also other possible issues that can vary depending on local conditions, like from freeze-thaw cycle in cold climate zones, and specific details of how the structure was constructed.

      So it’s not “no” maintenance and some may need more maintenance than others but that said it can be very low maintenance and have fewer issues over the life of the home…

        I realize that being in Brazil, building requirements will be very different to ours in the U.S, but I always wonder how insulation etc, works with exposed brick and stonework – is that something you just forego in an exposed brick structure like this? Where you’re trying to minimize the costs but maximise the comforts in heating and cooling a tiny space, how well does exposed brick fit the bill?

          I’m not the builder of this home but you can insulate any structure. While brick structures originally weren’t insulated, like other masonry based structures, there’s a variety of ways to do so now and it’s normal to do so in any newer construction or update an older one.

          Typically, there’s a normal stick framed layer that you insulate and that’s either the inner wall or is sandwiched between the inner and outer brick walls. How you do it just has to take into account the porous nature of stone, brick, stucco, etc. and either block moisture penetration or give a cavity where it can drain away safely.

          Not usually a issue in homes placed in temperate/mild climates but something to consider if you’re in a more extreme climate zone. The bricks can also be veneer layer and done more for appearance rather than structural like old Solid Masonry structures, but still using real bricks, single wythe.

          While there’s also many faux material products that can also be used that would provide the same look, similar longevity, but without the potential issues in more extreme climates.

          Btw, brick has an R-Value and generally offers better insulation than other siding materials with an R-value of .80. In comparison vinyl, wood and fiber cement are all lower than .R-value .35. Although an R-value of .80 isn’t very much either, in a mild climate and combined with thermal mass effect it can be adequate, if you’re going with a more old world traditional masonry structure.

          There would just be an inner and outer wall in Solid Masonry brick homes. So inner wall would not be in direct contact with the outer wall…

        James,
        Thank You for your insight, as always you provide all the knowledge and then some – we really must get you on a consultancy fee because everytime a new-to-me technical issue comes up, I’m looking to see what you’ve had to say!
        Though I now live in the U.S, I’m actually from the U.K where most of our housing stock is red brick and as such, is far less appealing to me than more American styles. But save for Victorian properties that sometimes retain brick interiors – most of which will have been uncovered during restoration to suit taste – there is almost always a breeze block interior, (cinder block I think it’s called here?) Then that will be plastered/plasterboarded just as dry wall proliferates here, so I’ve never really thought about the insulation value. The main consideration in the U.K is rain and subsequent damp issues rather than huge temperature shifts and extreme weather such as we have to think about here. I suspect modern houses here, there and probably everywhere else in the world are built much like the popsicle stick houses my ten year old makes lol so we have to look to individual home builders to find anything remotely different. Thank you for your time – I am off to read about R numbers!

    Great small house. Materials work to make this look permanent. I would flip the bed area with the living room forming an open room while giving the bedroom more privacy. Kudos.

    Love it! – do have concern about curtain over stove burner if it’s as close as it appears!

    The curtains that dangle over the stove… this might not be such a good idea.

    What I like about this tiny brick house is the fact that its made of brick. I’m looking for a house to build that is all seasons and can be set on an attached foundation. I have no intentions of moving about the country. I just want a small efficient place to live that is no more than 600 square feet of heated space. Where part of it can be converted to hold a cistern tank. I love the rest of the house. Except I’d switch places with the bed and living areas. There is no way I would have a stove with curtains hanging right behind it. I’d love to see the blueprint.

    Lovely space, most definitely has a rental guest house feel to it but easy to see the full time potential. I understand that easy access around the bed probably dictates it’s placing for rentals but to me too, that nook is most definitely a bedroom – that beam in the corner is beautiful and with some similar shelving I see pretty boxes and lighting possibilities. We’ve had our bed in our lounge area before and blocking light unless you’re a very early riser is important, so I assume that and modesty is the reason for the curtains. But blinds would make much more sense – relying on others to slide that curtain all the way away from the stove would give me extreme anxiety! I do really like that little kitchen, though if it were mine, those windows would sit atop a deep-seated dinette because a window seat to read in would be a dream. And I am a little obsessed with dining nooks that convert into beds – inspired by Christine Plum of Plum Construction. A great little find with so much potential.
