This is what our lounge looks like L. After 2 years of putting up with a damp problem Mr P. finally had enough and pulled down the offending walls!
Did a damp proof course, sealed the brickwork and now we are waiting to do the last bit of plastering and then painting. Then new cupboards will be built and the TV will become part of the wall.
Thank goodness for Elf Slippers to keep me warm in the chaos!!
