Mark McCullough travels to Bridgewater, MA to see how local bricks are made
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:
The bricks that Mark McCullough is using for the Arlington Arts & Crafts house chimney are the same bricks that grace much of historic Boston. He meets Lincoln Andrews in Bridgewater, MA and gets a tour of the factory where these bricks have been made for over 100 years. They watch raw indigenous clay get milled, mixed, pressed into molds, dried and finally heated in a round kiln to almost 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. After several days, the bricks are sorted and strapped and ready to send to the jobsite.
