A first-time home-buyer's guide to damp It sweats a palette of purple stars to birthmark new-born skies: each bruise is a pinprick miracle whose galaxies of dead weight are spinning dreams from dust – hooked on air like an addict or artist – the house is sucked to a shadow of its former self. Masterpiece or mould, it’s difficult to tell until the brick turns bad like any love bite does.
