My workshop is all wood but <15msq, so I can set fire to it as much as I like :lol:
This thread is a query off the back of a conversation I had with one of the other petrolheads at work, who getting rid of a crappy old asbestos roofed concrete thing and has previously admired my shed so...
Presumably these are those classed as suitable for habitable buildings, which tends to be the 15-25year stuff anyway (don't see the point of 5yr shed felt tissue paper).
Although these meet spread of fire, are these considered substantially non-combustable?
Is everything that meets spread of...
As I understand BR, if you build an outbuilding of 15-30m2 within 1m of of the boundary,
Then you are required to build the structure of primarily non-combustable materials to avoid needing a visit from your local BCO.
Question the first:
What is measured to the boundary...
With the 2nd option, you will need to make your roof "non-combustable" if the building is within 1m of the boundary as it is 15-30m2.
Don't forget, all glazing / electrics / heating should technically still conform to BR and be installed by qualified or competant persons where required.
It appears my previous post has been moderated away*
Even with my, somewhat cavalier; approach to PP/BR and signoff's for small to moderate jobs**,
I wouldn't dream of embarking on a project of this scale simply hoping it would slip under the radar.
Good luck with your endeavors...
Good to hear it's been done before,
You mention leaving spaces for water drainage - how do you tend to do this?
I tested a sample (under the tap) at the same low pitch angle as my shed roof and was impressed at how much went across the top surface of the base layer rather than through the...
Bit of a thread drift here as you intend to add the panels as a later addition,
is there a solarPV panel system that could be used as the primary external waterproofing surface?
Hard insulate to the back of it and you could have an excellent roofing solution.
Compact too where height...
Don't know much about roofing,
But here's the shed i'm building that currently has a waterproof base-layer and is awaiting a protective grit layer.
How bad an idea would it be to put false grass on instead of this grit layer?
Let the mocking commence.
I'm nearly 2 years into our renovation of our 1886 3-bed semi.
We didn't move in until 6 months after purchase and used it to get all of the nasty jobs done.
Knocked holes in walls, ripped out the kitchen and bathroom, replaced ceilings, installed double glazing throughout, rewired...
Haha, that's both brilliant and bonkers!
Have you treated the chipboard and maintained venitlation underneath?
(if not it may be worth peeling back the grass and giving it a good coat of something and sitting it on bricks to give some longevity to it.)
The hinges are thick enough for what they do, the mountings have been hidden and will be attatched through the doors with coach bolts,
It's a valid point though as many people will spend £20 on a tough as nails padlock,
but forget that the hinges could just be unscrewed!
