In the process of house renovation, bedroom has timber frame bay window with plug socket in but no insulation in cavity. Naturally I want to insulate this during the refurb. My plan was to put kingspan/ celotex between timbers, then tape joints then visqueen over before 12.5mm boarding ready for skim. However I want to keep the socket that is on the wall. In terms of reinstating this after insulating, how to I get around the insulation/ get adequate depth for even a 25mm back box? Can I cut into the kingspan for box/ cables or should I batten out the PB to give space with a void between PB and kingspan or double up on plaster board?
Really up to up. If you cut into the kingspan, then that would compromise the insulation qualities. So if that is not an options, you need create a void for backbox or an alternative would be to use a surface mounted box.
