Conversion of utility room

I currently have a utility room which is accessible from a door in the kitchen.
The room is almost like an extension to the building although it was built at the same time as the house.
My problem at the minute is that i wish to remove the oil fired boiler from the utility room and move it outside and then remove the kitchen door so that the kitch is opened up and encorporates the utility room.

This is where the problem starts.

The utitlity room is only single skin rather than double bricked with cavity wall insulation and so is quite cold.

One of the things I am intending to do is to plumb in a small radiator to this room although unless i can do something about the cold comming in then it will be a waste of time.

I had thaought about framing around the exterior walls and then lining them with some form of insulation and then plasterboarding.

Can any one advise me here and point me in the right direction.

Sounds like a good idea to line+ insulate :idea: Which way are ye facin` :rolleyes: :?: Ineeds to know where to point ye.
what do you mean which way are ye facin?

when you say line and insulate what do you mean by line?
also what would be the best material to insulate with?

N. facing walls are usually you thought, ie.wooden framework with plasterboard on top and Polystyrene :?: between the wood. prob. the best value option ;) There may be a link on diy-not. for Drylining.
