Loft conversion is under-way

With some help from Teres’s dad I have started work on the loft conversion.  Unfortunately temperatures have been down to -29 and because the loft isn’t yet insulated, I have not been able to work in the loft for long periods.

The gable end is now insulated


I have made the wall and roof joists thicker so that there will be 20cms insulation in the walls and 30cms in the apex of the ceiling.

To allow air to move freely at the back of the walls and ceiling I have created a ventilation channel using two layers of hardboard with 2″x2″ batons.

We will see how much more work has been done in another week.
