Hi all, I am investigating the amount of the task ahead of me and would like to hear from anyone on here who could help with links, advice or recommendations. The details: 2-storey stone farmhouse, approx 100 years old. No DPC, as far as I can ascertain (perhaps a slate one, but definitely no modern one. Garden on one side is slightly higher and sloped towards house. No French drain. and no footpath on this gable (lawn comes right up to house). Damp on interior wall on this side. Garden wall connects to house on opposite corner and interior wall is damp there also. This wall was dry lined approx 25 years ago. God knows what lurks behind there now. External render/pebbledash is coming away from wall to approx 2M height. My questions: To prevent further damp, I am thinking that a french drain and footpath on one side. Disconnect stone garden wall and repair render with lime render on the other side. Is this a sensible start? To rectify the existing damp, what is the best thing to do? Rip out the dry-lining I assume and treat the stone wall directly with lime plaster? To insulate a house like this, what is recommended? There is a stove and an open fire both with back boilers and an oil boiler. Downstairs isn't too bad but upstairs rooms are very cold on cold nights. Attic is pretty well insulated. I have read that these walls need to breathe but we need to stay warm without burning oil/coal constantly. Would retrofitted underfloor heating with geothermal be beneficial? I'm just starting down this rabbithole now so any advice or resources in advance would be welcome. Thanks, P.
