    I have a small unfinished room which will soon be a guest toilet. The room also houses the gas combi and the consumer unit.

    The rennovations are being done under a building notice.

    I want to clad a stud wall inside this room with timber rather than plaster it.

    From a fire point of view should i clad it with plasterboard first and do the building regs have any thing to say about this.

    It's a bungalow if that makes any difference.

    Cheers

    This question comes under the 'surface spread of flame' aspects of the fire regs.
    If it's a small room under 4 sq m, you can line it in timber (without plasterboard behind it).
