comment We hear a constant bass subwoofer like thumping noise every night from about midnight to 7 am
Also available is wave guide tunneling caused by air layer density. The train yard is 3 miles away and across a river, but on certain nights with the right temperature, you would swear the locomotive was running in the next street and when they bump to couple, it can sound like a minor car accident occurred. The rest of the year it's a minor whisper in the breeze. A molding plant up the hillside and 6 miles away in the same direction gave us a low continuous loud hum in our back yard when it bounced off the top of that same air layer.

comment Is it normal for uPVC window shutters to be pre-fitted to the frame at the factory or not?
Does this area have building codes and standardized building practices and was this house built using standardized building practices? Sounds like a retrofit into non-standard construction where proper rough-in opening dimensions weren't available and those always involve a lot of extra makework, tinkering and adjustment. A manufactured window expects a rough-in opening of a specific size and generally drops into place with minor adjustment to make sure it's squared up and then fastened into the opening.
