    Brick structures rely on their wide flat side and weight to stay put.

    Mortar between breeks attends seating but when dried is not an

    adhesive. Earthquakes generate different types of forces. One of

    which drops brick walls like stacked cards. California building

    codes prevent your new home from crushing just the owner dead.

    If only it was that easy to eliminate all our incompetent, but no,

    California wants you to outlive the life of your home construction

    Brick is cheap in California ? Golly, Miss Molly, go figure.

    Brick is cheap, but you need a LOT of it, there's the mortar to account for and it's labour-intensive.

    I think your timber will work out cheaper. Or can you build in Structured insulated panels?

    Yes you can do that, but will take a host of permits and inspections. May even require a contractor to do the building.

    Provisions vary county to county, so you need to check with local zoning office.
