    I've been searching around after a post (which I can't find), talked about insulating a conservatory roof and then plaster-boarding it.

    But isn't it a rule that the roof must be 75% translucent?

    Yet if it's all plaster-boarded how can that be?

    What's the rule guys?

    Well I've read that through and I'm still not quite sure. Can I have a roof with a couple of Velux windows and the rest slate, insulated and plasterboarded?

    That's assuming it's separated from the house by original door and not connected to the heating system.

    Yes Joe there is no minimum or maximum amount of glazing in order to qualify as a conservatory.

    The important bit from the other thread being:

    If I make a concrete floor etc - can I install a wood-burner and put the flue out of the roof? Anyone know? Cheers.

    Yes as long as the installation complies with Building regs.
