    Another Insulation Post

    Hi Woody, I see your point, I'll go with the original plan then. You're absolutely right though, all the new builds across the road have OSB exteriors and then cladding or some sort of rendering on them. If it can go a good few years I can accept that. The next workshop will just have to be...

    Another Insulation Post

    Thanks for the posts guys! Based on what you've said Mike, would it help at all to drill a small ventilation hole in each cavity, just above the noggins (being careful not to penetrate the membrane), so that if/when any moisture does build up behind the outer layer of OSB, it can evaporate...

    Another Insulation Post

    Thanks Mike, It's my first project and safe to say I have made a few mistakes but definitely learnt some lessons. I shall have to go down the preventative route as Woody suggested. I'm not sure about heating it during the winter at this point in time (although I know will still be cold in the...

    Hey W2S, That seems like solid advice to me, so will take that on board and do that. Thanks for the help, much appreciated! Cheers, Steve

    Another Insulation Post

    Hi W2S, Thanks for the quick reply! Ok that's good to know, I suddenly had a panic thinking that the outer layer of OSB would cause me problems in the future by trapping moisture, but panic over :D My plan as you say would be to use OSB internally, with insulation of some description in...

    Another Insulation Post

    Hi guys, Just me again. I've pretty much finished my workshop now, and starting to look to the inside construction, but first I have a couple of questions: 1) The wall construction is (outer to inner): featheredge cladding, battens, breathable membrane, OSB, stud framework (no insulation or...

    uPVC Beading Pushing Frame Out

    Hi Woody2Shoes, Thanks for the reply! I've managed to fix it now. In my error I had glazed the middle window with the side windows open. When I banged the beading in, it had bowed the window frame out, preventing me from closing the side windows. Just gave the frame a tap back in and it was...

    uPVC Beading Pushing Frame Out

    Hi all, I'm almost at the end of my workshop build now, but I'm having an issue with my upvc window. Months ago, I bought a window second hand, although in good condition (not far off new). It's about 2440x1340mm, and has 2 side opening windows and a normal one in the middle. Anyway, my mrs...

    Felt and Underlay

    Hi all, Thanks for all the advice. In the end I've decided on a felt underlay (sand finish) with a mineral felt capsheet. Weather's turned a bit pants now, so my next question :D is how damp can OSB3 be to put the felt down with bitumen adhesive and clout nails? I've seen various comments on...

    Felt and Underlay

    Hi guys, Many thanks for the responses. This is my first build so apologies for my ignorance on the subject, and apologies as I don't think I've explained the initial post very well. I've put down some OSB board on the rafters which is 11mm thick. The shed is a wedge shape, and so the pitch...

    Felt and Underlay

    Hi all, Another question in the workshop build. I've just finished laying OSB over the rafters and I'm now ready to lay the breathable membrane. The plan is to lay Vent 3 underlay felt, then put mineral felt on top of this. Just looking to confirm if the following method is correct: lay the...

    Help with Shed rafters

    Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated! Sorry for my ignorance MikeG, could you explain a bit more your idea about the parallel plate please? Would this cause the roof to stick out further behind the shed?

    Help with Shed rafters

    Hi MikeG, Thanks for the reply! Yeah that's correct, the roof will twist slightly due to the changing pitch. Originally I thought of OSB'ing the roof and having felt shingles. They recommend 15 degrees pitch though and the shallow side is the one exposed to the elements, so I think instead I...

    Help with Shed rafters

    Hi all, I've turned to the forums for some advice on shed rafters. I'm currently building my workshop/shed in a funny part of the garden. It's forced me to make a wedge shaped building, with the wider end being about 2.9m, and the narrow end about 1.4m. It's about 4.9m in length measured on...

    uPVC Windows on Timber Frame

    Hi all, Just looking for a bit of reassurance rather than anything (hopefully!). I'm currently going through the process of building a workshop/shed. The shed will be a wooden frame construction, sat on 2 courses of bricks, on a concrete slab. I've just bought a second hand uPVC window...

    Off Cuts

    Sounds great! Appreciate it may be a while now until the next batch but if you could add me on some sort of waiting list for a load it would be much appreciated!

    Cost of Wood

    Thanks Custard, some good advice. That's one thing I liked about English Timber was the buying process seemed particularly easy. To be honest I don't necessarily have to start off working with oak, just thought it might be a good starting point. But maybe I should expand my horizons and see...

    Cost of Wood

    Yeah I agree. All good points there. Custard, English Woodlands Timber are one the places I've been looking at. Any advice for buying from them? Or how they go about their grading? I'm trying to plan a trip there at some point as it's not too far from the in-laws.
