The walls are not 9inch solid. The outer brick work has a cavity then inner wall as normal, however, the return wall that creates the porch recess uses a complete full length brick that is layed at right angle from the outer brick. It is this brick that will become the inside of the hallway when the door is resited forward to the outer brickwork. The only way I can explain more explicit perhaps is this. If you imagine adding an extension from your outer wall, you would cut into the outer brickwork through into the cavity, and using wall profiles you would then build your extension, the area of the outer wall that becomes the inside of your extension would then be damp proof due to the cuts each side that you have created into the cavity. If this is clear to you then what I am saying about the porch is the same problem because the return outer wall that creates the internal porch is part of the outer wall, even using a wall profile to build the brickwork eachside of the porch opening to accept the door, the return brickwork eachside is still part of the oter wall when it becomes the inside wall after the new brickwork and door has been moved forward.
Er...............................is this clear? sorry if not
