    I have a single skin store room, built in the 1790s, on the side of my house. It's about 4ft wide by 16tft deep, with granite blocks forming the roof. I want to use it for storage.

    Apart from two small grated vents on the door, there's no ventilation. The brickwork is single skin, really old and I think moisture is getting through it. Most of the time it feels warm, damp and humid. North facing so it gets little sunshine.

    I have some left over Touch and Foam spray form insulation... enough to do the inside of the store walls and ceiling. It was expensive stuff and did a good job at insulating an old metal garage roofs. The question is, can I used it on the inside of the store's brick walls?

    I was thinking I would batten out, spray the foam, and put some OSB on top. It's only a store shed after all.

    Would this be beneficial for the room? the foam goes off soon, so I either use it or ditch it!

    Not my area of expertise but safest bet might be to line the walls with plastic sheet held up by the battens and spray that if you find a problem later removal should be simple.(y)
