As a bricklayer, Greg Saunders has spent most of his adult life building houses for other people. Now after dreaming about it for more than twenty years, he’s doing it for himself with the help of his good friends Tristan and John, using the materials he’s most passionate about – bricks.
Greg and Emma’s, South Melbourne, three level home was recently featured on Australia’s Grand Design in Series 4, Episode 2, ‘South Melbourne Brick House’. It obviously had a huge impact as the morning after the show went to air, my phone rang off the hook with bricklayers asking me if I saw it. I realised then, the interest Greg had sparked in our trade.
