Advice Needed for Re-Insulating a Wooden Shed

Postby fluffybunny » Tue Nov 08, 2016 2:12 pm

Hi guys

I'm new but I'm in need of help if possible.

We've had a large wooden shed built. Even though its a shed we're going to put a pool table in there, dartboard etc and our teenagers will use it.

For heating we'll probably get some oil filled radiators in there if its chilly in winter.

Ok, its 19mm tanalised wood cladding on the outside. I've had 50mm Celotex sheets. The depth of walls are 64mm but I've been reading up on it and I'm a bit confused on the vapour barrier and breathable membrane. Do I need a membrane? Or is the 14mm gap ok?

Its a bit of a project on a budget (yes, I know Celotex wasn't cheap but I had a bargain that was too good to miss) so we're thinking of putting either pallet wood up as the inner wall or possibly OSB boards. I thought we'd just slot the Celotex in and then the pallet wood / boards but, before I start, I want to make sure I do it properly.

ANY help/advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
