Just moved - help needed re hanging heavy mirrors etc

I have just moved from an old Army house (60 years old) to a fairly mordern semi-detached house which is nine years old. In our old house ALL of the walls, internal and external, were solid brick so hanging stuff off them was no problem. The new house is timber frame with plaster board walls.

My first question is will the shared wall with the other side of the semi be just plaster board and no brick? Would there be plasterboard - then a gap then more plasterboard? I really don't know much about building construction!

Secondly - Can I hang the heavy mirrors on any wall? If so what type of fittings should I use?

Many thanks

With regard to your first question you would be better off to ask on the Building sub forum, with regard to fixings you will need plasterboard fixings.
