    Would it be possible to get two ADSL lines in one house?

    Yes, you just need 2 BT lines (that aren't shared, e.g. DACs)

    Would this be benificial or a waste of time? I.E could you bridge both adsl connections or have 2 dedicated connections

    You could bond them if your ISP supported it. I think Nildram are the only ones

    You'd have 2 separate connections.

    If you had kit that would do it, you could load balance between them. If the ISP supported it, you could bond them too.
    Bridging them would never work.

    Nope. IIRC Nildram's stopped doing it, and AAISP and Enta do it.
