Same here I'm afraid! I live in an 1850's terrace, basement flat. It has been damp-proofed but on days like today it just feels like the rain is seeping in through the walls, the floor, everywhere! Plus I am surrounded by damp washing which has not dried for two days (DH's brillian idea that we really don't need a tumble dryer ). I too have had to put the heating on, with windows open as it is too hot now! (windows don't open properly as they are sash windows with window locks on so only open a crack at the top and bottom). Most of the time I love where I live, and it is wonderfully cool on hot days, but as DS2 says "Mummy, we live in a hole in the ground!".
aw its crap isn't it? We had to turn the heating down as it got to hot, but everything just feels, almost tacky. Not quite, but almost, damp.
I put trousers on the banisters on sunday (hallway the warmest part of the house for some reason, for drying purposes) it usually would dry overnight but by tuesday morning, they were still very very damp! I had to wear them wet as nothing else was dry either!
The wooden floors feel like something has been spilt and almost dried, but not quite, or like a wet towel has been left on the floor .
We have been here almost 3 years, and its never been like this before! I am so fed up with this weather!
BB do you have good light in the basement flat? A friend of mine lived in a basement flat for a while and she actually had huge french doors at one end of the place as it was on a slope, the other end had tiny windows but the french doors gave it enough light, I was very surprised.
We have a garden at the back, so the light is good in the bedrooms, but in winter I feel like I am in a dungeon, have to have all the lights on all the time! The main reason we chose our flat is because we absolutely wanted our own outside space, and also we have our own front door, rather than sharing communal entrance and corridors etc.
