I live in somewhat draughty basement flat with sash windows. The
windows have deep sills (about 500mm), like window seats.
I had some damp damage in a bedroom and had to remove a 200mm square
hole from the plaster underneath a window. This is about to be
repaired, but I'm wondering whether I should try to insulate the
cavernous hole beneath the window, revealed by the hole. It's quite a
small area of wall - only about 1.5m wide and 1m high - so it's
probably not worth cutting out a huge section to get at it properly.
I'm wondering whether I can use the small access hole to spray some
foam insulation on the inside of the wall. It obviously won't fill the
huge hole, and I'm wondering whether I'll have any success trying to
get any kind of coverage with that awkward level of access.
Should I just not bother?
