I am looking for a garden office comfortable for me to work there full time - and all year round so it would have to be heated and insulated. Would it be cheaper to build one or to buy & insulate a ready-made one? Any idea how much (roughly)?

I want to convert my loft but not sure where the access/stairs to it could be, the space in the hallway is tight and I don’t want to eat into bedroom space. (I’m assuming no planning permission will be necessary). Do I need an architect or could a good builder help me with design solutions as well?

My chimney breast runs through the ground floor, a bedroom on the first floor and the attic. There is dampness on the chimney on the first floor and attic but not on the ground floor. I have closed the chimney flue from the bottom using chimney sheep for few months, has this caused condensation which is showing as the dampness? Or do I need to be worried about another reason for the dampness?

I have double glazing windows that were installed about 5-7 years ago and they trap a lot of condensation in between the glass. This seems to be getting worse. In the morning water runs down the inside of the window and during the day some windows just remain hazy. Will this eventually cause damage to the frame or anything else? Is it due to faulty window frames? How can this be fixed?

Old 2bed maisonette from the 40s or 50s with open airbricks in lounge and both bedrooms makes the house freezing as all of the warmth from the radiators escape out. Is it safe to block up airbricks or do they still serve a purpose? How can it be done with least mess as the rooms have been recently painted?

I currently have thin laminated flooring. My neighbour underneath me says she can hear my every footstep. House is also freezing so for added warmth and sound barrier I would like to carpet my home. Can carpet be laid directly on top of the existing flooring? What is involved in this kind of job? It would be to carpet 3 rooms and a hallway.
