German Smear

Recommended Posts

This is not a CHIEF question at all, and sorry for using this forum in advance, but many experts on here.  Client wants a German Smear facade on her brick.. the modeling part is easy, but how in the world would I communicate this on a drawing?  The 2D pattern is brick.  Would this just be a note to smear the brick with a mortar compound afterwards for the German affect?  Attached is screen grab of model exterior.

How about a watercolor or standard view elevation for that wall since it looks like you have the texture figured out.  Then at least the note would make sense.

I'd find an image that the client will sign off on and include it with the plans.

 

Everyone will have a unique idea of what a German Smear is. I think of it as being much more consistent like this.

Maybe attach a few different photos and a note. You could also include Joanna Gaines' from Fixer Upper phone number and she could give them detailed instructions lol.:D

She would just tell them to switch the siding to ship lap.

I knew you all had ideas..  :-)    A picture is worth a thousand words, and that's what I will do.  

 

And if you have Joanna's number, pass it on, the misses would love to call her.  YES, there is ship lap in this house and now the one I live in....

That's exactly what I did.. placed a rendered view on layout sheet, with a CYA note for home owner to verify.
