    i,m building a timber shed. with the sides made with a frame work. i,m covering it with a dampproof membrane and feather edge timber. the inside will have insulation, rockwool, with osb board finish. would it be worth putting reflective foil between the osb and insulation. hope all this makes sence. thanks for any help and advice.

    make sure you have a good 20-25mm gap between insulation and membrane
    txg shiplap will be better than feather edge

    Why are you insulating a shed?

    So it’s a heated gym, not a shed?

    We seem to have had lots of posts recently from people wanting to heat outside spaces - garages, conservatories, sheds. Is this 2020’s “in thing”?

    If you're using a treadmill and you need a heater on you're doing it wrong.
