    Hi everyone.

    Our cellar has a sleeper wall in the middle of it but is not honeycombed. Its quite musty down there and so I want to improve the cross ventilation by adding some air bricks to the sleeper wall. What I want to know is whether it's okay to have an air brick lower down the wall with another one higher up directly above it (approx 5-6 courses higher) or could it pose structural issues?

    PS - I don't intend to install the air bricks beneath the sections of wall the the joists directly sit upon.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,
