    Hi folks

    I'm moving house in the next few weeks to a new build with detached 20 x 12 garage. I'll be converting the garage into a home bar, complete with pool table.

    The garage is single skin (brick build) and the external is rendered. The floor is concrete and the roof I'm not sure on, however it's pointed with internal batons on display.

    These are my plans to convert the garage:

    Walls
    -Dob and dab 12.5mm insulated plasterboard
    -Paint two walls
    -Treat two walls with emulsion before putting up wallpaper

    Door
    Standard up and over door.
    -DPM tape to seal around the door
    -Polystyrene sheets spray glued across door until level with brick wall.
    -Thermal insulation foil across door and taped to surrounding wall edge.
    -Insulated plasterboard over the top, same as the other walls.

    Ceiling
    -Celotax between batons
    -Insulated plasterboard fixed on top, across ceiling batons

    Floor
    -DPM underlay
    -Thick vinyl

    What do you guys think of the above plan? Does it look good for insulation/soundproofing or should I be taking other steps?

    I'm keen to hang heavy wooden shelves and a large TV from the walls. Would this be feasible with plasterboard? I've looked into DryLine Pro, however there was comments that this could damage the plasterboard. Do you have any recommendations on how I could approach this?

    Thanks very much in advance!
    Trevor
