How old is the house? Mine's 200+, and our kitchen also has a brick
wall. It was common at that time to use brick and mortar between the
studs. Our whole first floor is built that way. The previous owner

second floor. I could remove just the bricks (had to do that in one
room when I replaced the sill plate), but then I'd need to fill up or
