The original plan was to have 2 (outside) walls framed, boarded and plastered and the 2 internal boarded and plastered. I was just prepping the walls when I found a rather wet damp patch in the upper corner of one of outer walls, just under an unused chimney stack. Should I postpone drylining work and does and one have any advice on what I should do about the damp. (Chimney being removed soon due to other work going on).
Some background: Old stone farmhouse, rough-cast rendered and painted.
I expect this is a two story building? Is this a picture of upstairs just under the roof? Or downstairs? If its downstairs what is in the room above? If its upstairs, it may be the chimney, the gutter, the roof or a leaking down pipe.
