Hi Les.
ys the cracked plaster there are a few variations around, are your bricks hand layed? One way is to plaster up the bricks on paper in the chosen pattern spread a bit of plaster around then use a bit of thin wood as a buffer then hit it all with a hammer. A lot of it will shatter this is what you want but don't break the paper, pick up the paper with the shattered wall and then glue it on to you shape in this case the house.
cheers Kim

Or, simply manipulate the finished paper walls by hand to crack the wall in a controlled manner.

The bricks are hand laid onto foamboard, glued down with PVA. Perhaps a little unevenness would have helped to give some "air" under parts of the plaster enabling the cracking with thumb pressure. (Hope that makes sense!)
