Rob, talk to locals on whether you should install insulation.
As for laying the brick, measure from the top of your footing to the bottom
of the home, then calculate the number of courses plus mortar joint
thickness. You can adjust that joint thickness to make a perfect fit at the
top when you squish in the last mortar from both inside and outside.
I've not done this but it seems to me a good idea to have a termite shield
between the bottom of the home and the top of the brick wall. I would also
install interior piers before building the wall.
