Change brick in a brick wall exterior

Recommended Posts

I'm a new user but am making relatively good progress using the Chief Architect 2017 version.    I have a working layout which is using a "Brick-4" exterior wall.   

 

However, the house I'm trying to model actually uses an 11.5" wide brick, which is a very different look for the brick exterior.

 

Are there any catalogs or other trips anyone could suggest about how to add an 11.5" X 2.25" X 3.5" brick?   If so, is there a way to match the color of the brick and mortar?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best regards,

 

GJ-N

Please clarify what software you are using. Home Designer or Chief Architect?

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

You can change the scale of materials, as well as blend the material with a different color.  What version of 2017 are you using?  (Essentials/Suite/Interiors/Architectural/Pro)  If you find something similar that tiles seamless across a surface, you can also import your own brick material.
