  3. Watch UK Television, "60's.

    Love will Hay films, especially Moore Marriott....."ooo, next trains gone" Harry Enfield did a skit in Norbet Smith, a Life ( worth watching the whole thing IMO )

    Hi Vinnie, will PM you later after I've walked the hound & had some scram ( save boring everybody else on here ) Oh BTW screwfix have an offer on double foil Airtech at the mo,25M X 1.5M for £80 and 25M X 1.2 for 60 quid

  7. Heating the new man cave

    lol....I get that too "for goodness sake, just do it" on alternate days, and on the others " have you ordered your insulation yet?" so you think a single layer of Airtec is sufficient? and are you venting the outside? re heaters, think I'm going to go with my original 80W frostgaurd ticking over in the winter https://www.plumbnation.co.uk/site/sunhouse-fully-thermostatic-tubular-heaters/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1taMqpur2QIV7JPtCh2H7w8vEAQYASABEgIj0PD_BwE and a fan heater for when I'm in there crucifying plastic ( can blow cool in the summer to boot)

    Putting on the end of a woodscrew so it drives easier. As a model maker I didn't think I needed to wash, I've also got a big rucksack and can be rude to people at shows

    Hi Vinnie So, you';re going with the Airtec then, is that the 4mm double foil Airtec? as sold in Screwfix? How much space have you got to play with the wall & ceiling battens? I've only got 45mm wall battens & 70mm roof, I was also thinking a layer of Airtec equidistance, which would give me about 20mm each side of it in the walls & about 33 in the roof, the thing that slightly worries me tho is a single layer of 4mm reflective going to make it toasty enough? My other train of thought is stuff the roof with 60mm Celotex & the walls 40 and air gap be damned. Also, if an airgap is left on the outside would each section need to be vented top & bottom for airflow? If you don't went does that make the gap pointless? I'll also be lining the inner face under the cladding with SFTV foil membrane, to make it air tight and prevent moisture ingression. SFTV also has some reflective insulation qualities. As my better half says I'm probably over thinking, life was so much easier sitting in my bedroom as a kid sticking the latest Airfix together & slapping a thick coat of Humbrol all over it.
  10. Short Jokes II The Sequel

    I was in the Indian the other night, ordered my naan bread, don't know why really as I know she has a wheat allergy. then the bloke on the next table had a heart attack, he had a dodgy tikka apparently
  11. Heating the new man cave

    So from reading the above posts, it looks that no one has used an air gap between the insulation and the outer wall, (for drying out any water ingression through the cladding and thus preventing rot.) am I overthinking this?
  12. Heating the new man cave

    really? why?
  13. Heating the new man cave

    Certainly wouldn't use paraffin or gas, too much vapour produced & with the oil too many fumes for me, always gave me a headache as a kid. If its well insulated, as Laser says a fairly low wattage panel/fan/ halogen heater should suffice. when I get mine finished ( eventually, other things have overtaken in terms of priority.....thanks Dear! ) I'm going to have an 80W tube heater, the type used in greenhouses, ticking over permanently during the winter which will then be boosted when occupied by one of the above 3 leccy types. Also thinking of knocking one of these up for a bit of fun Can I ask how you've insulated please & did you have an air gap between insulation & outer cladding? cant decide whether to include one at the expense of thicker insulation or not, missus says I'm over thinking it and she's probably right. How about you Laser did you air gap with the Celotex? Edit;- As Marty states, I think the flowerpot heater would have to be used thoughtfully and not using any volatile substances or glue sniffing application.
