Garage conversion and fuse box access
We recently moved into a house with a garage conversion. The new room now housed the fuse box and the electricity meter, so to allow access holes have been cut into the plaster board. We have now noticed that although a door has been added to hide the holes/fuse box/meter, there is a draft coming through. There doesn't appear to be any insulation on this wall, is there anything we can do to tidy up the plaster board and reduce the draft?

The the most cost effective solution is to use expanding foam. Damp the area with a spray bottle first and then apply the spray foam. Leave the foam until it is full cured and cut back the excess neatly using a sharp knife
