yes,shibu! your selection of rat- trap bond and hollow roof is fine becoz
1. rat trap bond are able to trap the air inside the cavity which is non conducting and don't transfer the heat from outside to inside and vice versa, 2.A nine inch wall in rat trap masonary has sufficient strength for upto thee stories provided it has olid bands at sill lintel and roof level and hollow roof also do this work perfectly.You might know this fact that AR.LORRIE BACKER also promoted these technologies.
