I'm new here, but really need some help. I have an outside room next to my garage that hasn't got a ceiling, no plasterboard covering the bricks and quite cold and damp. I'd like to change this room into a gym / damp-proof storeroom.
I don't want to spend too much money, as we are saving up to build a granny flat on top of the garage (probably in about 2 years). I do need to fix this problem first, as I just moved back from another country and need a place to store all sorts of quality stuff that'll end up in the granny flat.
Questions: Is there a membrane I can staple to the beams to keep the dust out and that will be effective as a temporary ceiling? What do I need to paint the masonary with to keep the dust and damp out? Is there anything else I need to know? I really hope to hear from you soon...
