200mm cavity closer, DPC?

    Hi guys , getting close to the block layer starting the upstairs part of my house and when it comes to the cavity closer I'm scratching my head to avoid a thermal bridge. Block layer has mentioned a thermal block but I've seen DPC been used under the wallplate and stretched to the outer wall under the last course. Cavity is being pumped.

    Does a closing block add more strength to the wallplate instead of resting the roof load onto the inner leaf?
