    A quick one for the brickies.... garage cavity wall with 1 brick thick solid wall return to the door. How is the inner block work fixed to the return..... he circled red bit. Is it usually bonded in, or does it need a vertical dpc......

    I'm wondering what the typical arrangement would be

    Bricks keyed into blocks on the inner skin within the garage

    It's a poor design with cavity to stop damp and a solid wall which promotes damp, so you may as well just bond it in.

    And what's going on with that 100mm block wall between a garage and habitable room?

    Well the entire outside wall of the garage and the return thats currently there is a 9 inch solid wall that's been there since 1970 and there's never been any damp, so I think it'll be ok. And I'm considering an insulated stud wall to seperate the garage from the inhabitable space at the rear. Whats wrong with it being separated by a 100mm block wall........ the lack of insulation?

    Correct. It should be built with thermal protection in mind as will the garage ceiling.

    Why is the flank wall in cavity and the front wall solid? Is there a reason the whole thing isn't cavity work?

    Not sure...... might be to accommodate the weight and movement of the garage door..... plus having something solid to fix the door to in the right place

    Pretty standard detail isn’t it? Saves on insulation, cavity closers etc

    Did you pay someone for those plans? Whsts their refundbpolicy?

    Yes the internal partition wall needs to be to the same standard as external wall, and it needs to be a fire break wall, and the door a fire doorset with a step or raised threshold. None of which is noted.

    And there is no reason fire that return not to be un cavity too.
