    In one room of my house I'd like to remove the plasterboard on the party wall, add some Knauff insulation panels and put back a double thickness of plasterboard. Are there any regulations preventing me doing this? and do I treat the two layers as one, and screw them with longer screws? or do I screw one on and then the other?
    Thanks.

    there are no regulations preventing this that I'm aware of.

    fix one layer then stagger the joints on the next layer. you will obviously nee to buy a wider door casing too (where applicable).
