Has builder "forgotten" to insulate some walls ?

Now to confront the builder and if he doesn’t provide a suitable and hasty remedy, take him to town with the authorities. Alternatively, take him to town with the authorities…

indoor exposed brick wall sealer

Fair enough. Must be something about the way bricks are made, as our recycled brick wall doesn’t drop dust at all, unless you rub it with something abrasive.

It would be a non-structural defect because insulation is not structural. But it is also a non-structural defect because it is a breach of contract.

Flooring in Home Office/Study

Why not go entirely with laminated timber on the on the lower floor? I’d be surprised if the price was that much different.

You don’t say where you are located. While there might be some national suppliers, it might be better to find someone local to you.

When you say south facing, do you mean the front?

Sash Window Question
