Hello, I've had a small double bed built in my daughter's bedroom. It runs along the external wall side of the property onto the bulkhead above the stairs (its been a project to maximise space in her room). I've noticed that the bedding down the side if her bed by the wall is very cold and moist and I'm very concerned. The external wall is cold to touch and it's a solid wall with no cavity, we've not had any damp issues with this wall before, but we do have a condensation in the windows; one of which is at the end of her bed. Is the bedding pulling damp through the wall or is this a condensation issue? And the big question, what is the solution please?
Hi, thank you for your reply. No signs of any and I've never had any issues previously. It's just now with bedding touching the wall, so I'm planning on placing a membrane against the wall such as what is used under laminate flooring and then building up the side of the bed with plywood, to form an thermal barrier.
