    We have a ground floor extension with pitched roof at the front of our house. The walls of this house feel very cold to the touch. They feel hollow to the knock, so I assume some use of plasterboard.

    ... I'd like to inspect the construction of my wall to check we are not getting draughts in these walls.

    What is the best way of accomplishing this, given it's just a ground floor with a pitched roof over? Can I lift the roof tiles? How to cope with any membrane under that? I would also like to inspect the insulation while I'm there.
