I am about to build a new house overseas and the walls will be bricks (6in wide).

I need to insulate thjis some how. Over here (Chile) the do not insulate brick homes wall, you just deal with it.

So, I have read about insulating, but I have not seen any step by step, or good pics on this. I need very detailed guide lines so I tell the contractor what to do.

The problem is that no one is familar with the construction practices used, with the climate, and with the materials that you have available.

Using the wrong material in the wrong type of construction in the wrong climate can create a disaster that could cause damage the house and/or your health.

I would look closer to home.

Any Universities with architectural or engineering programs.

And government departments.

Any kind of building or trade associations or groups.
