    My son has just moved into his newly-built house. I'll be hanging pictures, mirrors, bathroom cabinets etc. soon.

    Do all timber-framed houses take specific fixings - do I use just cavity-wall types?

    Go along knocking the wall with your knuckle until you hear a dull thud, should be the counter battens nailed over the studs. They will be at either 400 or 600mm centres. For lightweight items just use redidriver plasterboard fixings or Spring toggles.

    So it's wooden studs just like cavity-walls?

    Structural studs (usually 89x38mm), 38x25mm battens nailed over the top, then plasterboard fixed on top of that is a standard construction detail throughout the country.
