gonna have a go at dry lining my garage to try and keep it toasty(ish) in the winter and to help with condensation on my motorbike (hopefully)
Was planning on using studwork with 70mm insulation slabs from wickes then 12.5mm PB,do I need to put up any kind of plastic membrane between the walls and studwork and again twixt the studwork,insulation and PB..ie so the insulation is sandwiched between the two layers of membrane...does that make sense?

Yes intend to install some slimline panel heaters to try and keep it as dry as poss,just to take the chill off really in the winter months
Hi, sounds ok what you have planned but i would use foilbacked plasterboards.

Cheers Dave,someone had said about the foilbacked PB in an earlier thread,what about the membrane between the brickwork and studding,is that advisable? what sort of stuff should I use or is it basically just plastic sheeting?
