(From the Heart), & firring with the Japanese style action flicks: Don (the 2006 version)
This may be done either by "plugging," that is, driving a plug of wood strongly into the mortar courses, into which the firring should be nailed, or by laying a strip of thin board in the mortar course, the entire length of each wall.
Brick walls may be thinner than stone walls, but they equally require "firring off" for inside plastering, and in addition, they need the aid of paint quite as often as wood, to give them an agreeable color -- bricks themselves not usually being in the category of desirable colors or shades.
