Re: Is this bad bricklayer work or did they mean to do this?

I have to agree with Houston. Even brick intentionally laid to look irregular (It's called "Farmhouse" or "Barn-style" around here) can be done much better than this. They might be fine structurally but I'm suspect of any work which looks this sloppy.

Re: Is this bad bricklayer work or did they mean to do this?

Looking for some input or any information any bodyssey has on brick work like the picture I posted. I've never seen this before and can't seem to find anything on the Internet. It's a house built in 1915 that I'm buying. I do have an inspection pending on the house but looking for any other input. Is this work common it sure looks intentional as some of the bricks are clearly rounded on top. I looked at it very closely but didn't think to take a picture so this screen shot is all I have.
