Ok, we have a crap ton of bricks and sand and mortar left from building the garage this spring. I showed DH a cool pic of a brick bottom greenhouse, but he quickly said NO. Ok, so a real greenhouse isn't so bright an idea with all the trees around, but still. So today I tossed out the idea of building a brick duck house. DH thought that might be a good idea. Now to figure out how to build it. I want it raised a bit off the ground and I want to be able to hose that sucker out daily still. My thinking is build it with 4 posts and deck board floor and brick on top of that base. But I'm not a mason, nor do I play one on TV... so I have no clue if you can brick on top of a wood base. Needs to be ventilated as it gets hot here at night. I'll probably have power available to it for a light in the winter if it is out near their pond. Need to have easy access to clean. Need to be able to hose daily. Need to be able to have water in there for the hot summer nights and not make a mess of everything. So, any suggestions on how to do this?
