Hi, I have a very simple suggestion for an alternate meta brick. Being from the construction business, I’m not sure how well-known the term “soldier course brick” is, but it’s when all adjacent bricks stand flush in a line like soldiers. This is quite a common trim in architecture, often as a single row around doorways and windows, or as headers/sills above and below. Easy to find examples on Google.
I propose we add this meta 2 with the same brick style as meta 1, but eliminate the half bricks and have it run 2 full bricks in width from top to bottom. Stone chisels would knock it down to one full brick and would look great for rustic all-brick builds like the one I am gearing up to build.
