One time I threw a shoe nearly all the way over the top of my house.

Yep, this one is exactly the same, except for some reason most of the screw holes for attaching it to the back 'wall' are near the very bottom of the TV lift, so I'd need something extra between the existing base, the new base and the back of the unit to secure the bottom dropped lift against.

Thanks for the tip. I'm using a small Venset TS750 which simply has a nudge to push a lid open, rather than having the lid attached to the top. Worth remembering for the next I do this! Which will probably be never.

@Mazura I had considered brackets as well (seems easy!), I just wasn't sure if I'd end up with a less aesthetically-pleasing join at the external corners.

Ah, I hadn't considered adding ribs! I like this as a solution for attaching the riser to the top. I just need to figure out the joints now!

+1 because I actually considered this idea myself when I was writing the question last night. I have some reservations about how well the TV lift mechanism would be affixed at the bottom (as, for some reason, that's where most of the screw holes are), but definitely worthy of an upvote!

Thanks for the tips, @brett-grubb - I think you're right; the condensation is appearing from the inside, but I hadn't considered the temperature difference to be what's causing it. The oven is built into an old chimney space, and so is utilising natural (unpowered) ventilation for extraction, so maybe a localised, powered extractor might help matters. Thanks!

Thanks for the tips. I was wondering if there's wicking (I learned a new word!) either from the outside store and through the wall, or from the inside out (since obviously the air can become quite moist in an active kitchen, and my wife cooks a lot), but I wasn't sure if anything could be done to the store. Worth noting that right in the very corner the plaster is dark, and very occasionally the wall feels wet. Other (flaky) areas feel bone dry.

The paint is flaking rather than bubbling. The plaster is not coming away - just the paint. There isn't a direct heat source near either part of the kitchen. There is a large window about a foot up and a foot to the left of the much smaller flaking that has started recently. There is no other moisture source near the original point other than backing onto the outside store.
