Since they didn't do a good job w/ the sheathing (it's pathetic, they have the old siding and some ply) they coulda, shoulda used a house wrap, even if it was felt paper, if not Tyvek for a proper seal of the inadaquate sheathing. Doesn't look like they are even using wall ties for the brick. If they were you could at least see some evidence of them at the edge of where the brick is ending and open on the side in pic, plus most masons will attach wall ties to the exterior walls ahead of themselves as they go along laying the brick which would show. Joseph are they using a different brick towards the right side or is the mortar still wet, which will also make the brick wet and make it look different before the mortar dries?
By the way, we do pay alot for 'Old Chicago' brick down here from the buildings ya'll tear down.

Definately looks wrong.  I don't know about anyone else, but in my experiences replacing windows, I've found the least amount of moisture damage when the house has been wrapped with felt (tar) paper.  I really think Tyvek and other synthetic house wraps trap as much moisture as they are supposed to allow through.  With felt paper, I have yet to find the levels of moisture that newer construction seems to yield.  Thoughts?
