    Hi,

    Our estate was built about 20 years ago and our particular design of house had an 'open plan' type of porch area consisting of a dwarf wall with some open wooden framework above for decorative effect.

    The majority of this type of house have subsequently had the porch enclosed, as has ours prior to us buying it two years ago. We have found that inside the porch has been really cold throughout the recent cold spell and I am putting this down to the fact that the porch wall under the window frame is solid 220mm brick with no cavity.

    I am wondering if it would be possible to insulate this wall in some way bearing in mind that I only have about 50mm clearance between the wall and the porch door hinges.

    I was thinking of some 'Space Blanket' type insulation against the wall and then boarded over with plasterboard.

    Is this in any way feasible and if so, is the benefit of the insulation - which I admit may be minimal, be worth the effort of installing it?

    appreciate any feedback. I have included a picture for clarity
