hi all, i am just begining a barn conversion in france and for cost reasons i am taking all to work on myself. i have a limited knowlage of concreating and was wondering the following points...
1, in what order do i lay the waterproof membrain, insulation and concreate to coply with french standards and what depth of each?
2, at the moment i have compacted earth floor but a hugh amount of height in the barn, can i lay my hardcore/concreate onto the compacted earth and raise the foor level rather than digging it all out?
3, can the slab be laid in one or should it be sections?, its aprox 20 m x 10 m.
4, do i need steel reinfocement wire laid in?
5, does anyone have a vaige idea what it will cost?
many thanks for taking the time to read this....brian
