Gap between brick wall and wood wall?

I am installing cultured brick on an interior wall (installed over cement board and motar base). This 'brick' wall intersects, "butts up" against (perpendicular to) another wall covered with 1" thick pine boards. Do I need to leave a gap between the brick and the wood that could be caulked at a later time? If yes how much ... 1/16", 1/8", more, none?

HI Jeff,

I'd leave a small gap 1/16" - 1/8" and caulk the corner, just like you would if this were a tile install. Gives room for a bit of movement, in case of settling, etc. Good luck my man.

Should be able to find some caulk that'll closely match the brick color, might have to look at a real tile & stone place to find the exact match.
