We live (sadly I feel) in a castaway and identikit world, where our worldly possessions are similar, if not the same as our neighbours’. Broken? well simply google and replace it, old? well do much the same. What happened to the truly handmade and coveted, the irreplaceable? When did the Next and John Lewis replicas take the fore?
Look around your home, now, how many things can you see that are truly one off, truly original? Now look again, how many of those things that transform your house to a home are from a chain, a department store, never original, always replicated? I bet you the latter wins out.
But, and my mother always taught me never to begin a sentence with but, BUT, surely your home is the one true expression of yours and your familiy’s individuality, your identity?! If not the interior then the exterior?!
A long time ago, before bricks were churned out by a factory at an alarming rate, each and every brick was handmade. The local clay was pressed into a mould, often made with local timber, and placed into a kiln before being left to cool. It was then turned out and shipped to someone with a dream of building a home, a truly individual home, for each and every brick was a one off, handmade, complete, perfection in their imperfection!
Unfortunately since, some of these houses are demolished to make way for new identikit developments, but at Windsor Reclamation we take pride in reclaiming these wonderful one off, hand made bricks for our customers, with vision.
Imagine, now, building a new home, totally different from that of your neighbours’, because each and every brick in your property has been made by hand. Every part of the exterior of your home is “one off”, now how many people can say that? And (my mother also said…….) if your home is that individual on the outside, imagine how truly you it can be on the inside!
Windsor Reclamation supply a wide range of wonderful old hand made bricks, ranging from orange to brightest red to help you add your character to your home, be it a new grand design or an extension, conservatory or garden wall. And when the original wont do we stock a replica hand made brick. Please call us and we will be happy to meet with you and work towards your individual dreams with you!
