There is plenty of info out there for laying a Concrete Slab and Underfloor heating, but I am undecided what process for me is best. I see my options as the below and keen to get feedback and comments.
Background: Extension approx 8x7m, slope site, finishing foundation walls and preparing for fill then Concrete slab pour. The structure is a reclaimed wood beam house. Location south Poland, winter -30c
Pros #Single pour for the slab inc underfloor heating Cons #This will be my first pour and we will be exposed to the elements, so concerned if I will get it level #Possablity of damage to the floor while building the wood structure and it may be exposed over winter at the speed things are going
Pros #Can lay the Screed once the building is weather tight Cons #Total Concrete mass will be 16.5cm, worried what effect this will have on performance of UFH #Maybe put the EPS Insulation on top of the Concrete, worried the low floor level may make the timer build difficult #Have to do multiple pours
