I have been home shopping on the east side of Fort Worth for about three years now. Periodically in the Meadowbrook area I encounter ranch style homes with a very distinctive brickwork pattern that is best described as arching or wavy. The homes are usually red brick (I've seen one yellow one) and often incorporate an oversize piece of rough brick at irregular intervals. I encountered one in south Fort Worth last Friday.

Can anyone provide any information on these homes or their builder?

Iíve also seen that style in E and SE Fort Worth as well as North Richland Hills. Iím not sure of the actual name of the style or builder, but our realtor called it ďlavarockĒ referring to the wart-like or nodule rocks amidst wavy red brick. I affectionately refer to it as psychedelic brickwork but donít particularly care for the style.
