    Hello,

    I live in a terraced house with a large bathroom in the outrigger above the kitchen at the back. I am looking to add a stud wall in my bathroom going across with the actual bathroom behind this. There is a window at the back.
    I would possibly add a roof light into this initial entrance bit to let in more light to the hallway with the original door removed and a door placed into the stud wall.

    I have a couple of questions about building regulations - do you need to notify building control and have them inspect a stud wall that is put up like this? I understand there are regulations regarding sound insulation, are there any others to be concerned with?
    Electrics and plumbing would be carried out by tradespersons.

    I have looked on the planning portal website but it does not seem very specific so thought I would ask here to get more information.

    Doesn't need B Regs just for a stud wall, unless you were creating a new room, the roof light will require b regs.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll probably be contacting the company that fitted our double glazing to do the roof light and provide building regs certificate.

    This can't be self certed under the FENSA scheme as it is a new installation rather than a replacement, you or the installer will need to apply for B Regs.
