  1. My husband and I have been wondering if we should go with thin brick panels for the exterior of our new house or full stones. So thanks for pointing out that with the former option, we are able to have more insulation and save on energy costs. We will definitely have to go with thin brick panels since I want to save on energy as much as possible.
