We purchased a 1960's home with a brick fireplace in the den. There was a cabinet to the right side of the fireplace which we decided to remove. Well, you know that things never go as planned...the side of the fireplace, it looks like a blind person just slapped on the mortar and stuck whatever brick pieces they had handy.
Now I'm faced with having to repair something I hadn't planned on facing. The guy I have doing all the work in my home took out the garbage brick, and now, I need to find replacement brick.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of brick this is called, and if anyone has any tips if you've ever had to do this type of repair before?
