Brick

The short answer is that you show the photo to an experienced brick mason.

For DIY, you will need a masonry saw since all the brick cannot be used at full size. Also, the roof is made of solid brick and you will need to match colors of the solid brick and the ones with holes for the vertical part of the structure. Notice that the solid brick on the roof peak are beveled so that the top edges will fit correctly. Just my 2 cents. Good luck with your project.
