Insulate wooden outbuilding

Postby thesergeant » Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:02 am

I need some advice on how best to insulate a wooden outbuilding that is to be used occasionally as a bedroom and office.

It is timber framed, shiplap to the outside with one layer of builders paper between the shiplap and internal joists.

I propose to use normal insulating material and then wood line the inside walls.

Should I put another layer of builders paper between the wood wall and the joists on the inside? Should I use a polythene membrane before the insulating material?

Really need some good advice to avoid a bad damp problem.

Many thanks
