Face Brick - How price per thousand effects real world costs

This is an example of why you should not use the method of price per thousand brick as a determining factor in the selection of your brick. Use the price per square foot and not the price per thousand.
For a $10 difference in the cost per thousand of a utility size brick the corresponding cost increase per square foot is approximately 3 per square foot. For a $10 difference in the cost per thousand for a standard size brick the price increase per square foot would be about 7 per square foot. The purpose of this example is to show the architect, and the owner of the structure, to think in terms of cost per square foot, a more familiar unit to work with than cost per thousand brick.
