The bricks even won fans from the installers. Adrian Cursio of Cursio Tiling said the floor in Scott Cam’s home on The Block was “ginormous”, but amazing. .
“It's something that I've never done before, that's for sure,” he said. “It was something out of the ordinary that you wouldn't generally use. But I think this is going to become the new in-thing. I'll definitely do it myself in my own home. I love it.”
Adrian used a PGH brick facing for the project. “We've laid it in a herringbone pattern right throughout Scotty's kitchen and the rest of his areas, including a border that runs around the whole perimeter. It's fantastic.”
He says that the brick flooring was “beautiful underfoot”. “I thought it was going to be a little bit uncomfortable to be honest, but it's really good. It's a great finish; a great texture.”
The brick chosen for the flooring was Chelsea, part of PGH Bricks’ Manhattan range. And Adrian was full of praise for its recycled-style aesthetic.
“The blend is just magnificent,” he says. “The way it all works together is just beautiful. And it just brings the whole floor to life. It's got such a character about it. And also, I think being farmhouse and having underfloor heating, I think the brick will retain the heat for a long period of time as well. I really like it when the heaters are on. It's beautiful.”
