My wife and I are having a home built by a local contractor. The house is wood framed construction with a brick exterior. The home is nearly complete -- just interior trim and paint work remains.
When I pushed against the exterior brick, I could hear the trim on the eaves flexing. Should the brick give at all? Also does Alabama have any building requirements addressing this? I'm not sure if they used brick ties or if they are even required since the walls aren't load bearing.
