    Hi guys,

    Wondering if any kind souls out there could offer me a few tips?

    I'm planning on insulating/plasterboarding a small 2x3m brick outhouse with a concrete floor/ceiling in my garden to use as a room... However, there's a damp looking patch that occurs on the far wall when it rains (which dries out pretty quickly when it stops and doesn't actually feel wet to the touch, the rest of the building seems pretty permanently dry). Had the entire building repointed a few years ago but noticed there's still a handful of gaps in the bottom layer of bricks, which is also entirely covered by soil/gravel on the outside so not sure if the combination of that could be the culprit?

    I've attached a few images to this thread - any advice on how I could fix it would be greatly appreciated!

    All the best,
