There is a void between the house framing and the brick wall. The bricks are attached to house sheathing with brick wall ties. ...

re: New Construction HVAC question - Joshkdixon
That's not bad at all. I think mind is made up to do 2 separate initially. One master and kids rooms and the other for main areas and guest room.
