Can I just ask how I seal the between the two sets of windows? I've got a carpenter who's going to make me a frame / box that fits into the decoupled wall and the secondary window will sit within the box. I obviously don't want to attach the back of this box to the brick outer wall as that would bridge my two walls but am I right in thinking that the reveal between the two windows should be airtight?

What if I brought the window box to the brick wall but allowed a small gap (10mm?) I could then add backer rod into the gap and caulk the join. Would this be suitable? If not, any other ideas? Also, should the gap between the windows be insulated around the edges with something like this?

Many Thanks again!

Congratulations and yeas and yes! You can leave smaller gaps. 5 mm to fill with acoustic caulk and backer rod. Yes reveal treatment will be of value.

Enjoy
