totally sold on the double moondust for us now. we went out to the brick yard and my partner said 'i really love that, but i guess we'll see how much of an upgrade it is or just get the standard height' then i told him double height is standard, so he's over the moon haha
the doubt gives such a nice look (compared to the single height of your neighbours)
It's offwhite mortar.
Since we weren't having a facade we decided we wanted our bricks to be a statement, we would have happily paid extra for those bricks, them being standard was just a bonus.
I would highly recommend the offwhite mortar, I think all up we paid maybe $1500 for the whole house, but it makes the bricks look so much better.
** just read my tender, the mortar was only $509
