I started a new project, and I'm removing all the brick along the wall of my fireplace. When I started to remove it I noticed that the insulation stops a couple inches below the first brick. Is this normal? Should there be insulation in the wall cavities? This is an exterior wall with just aluminum siding. The brick runs the whole width of the inside of the wall and along the floor. I'm removing all of it.

go here for pictures...


Thanks in advance for the help!
