Steve Hearn: The insulation was placed directly against the outer wall and then the dry
lined plaster boards placed up over the insulation. Hope this helps!
Andrew Henderson: how big is the shed thinking of doing something like this with my dad just
need to know if it would fit a futon and a tv and stand?
Eric Martin: Steve very informative video about to commence a similar project
a couple of questions
once you plaster boarded the wall did you then skim the walls?
what if anything did you do to insulate the floor or door?
i am really impressed with the shed your team has built
Sam Margrave: Hi there, you got any plans or details that you used? Can you recommend any
Haston Shook: Thanks a lot for the movie. I also have some information about diy,
comprehensive strategies and directions for wood working projects,
specially about storage shed Look at here for more info: shed.fine4.info
Steve Hearn: Hi Jamie. I have not had any issues with condensation and I think that is
due to the shed being properly insulated both for the floor, walls and
ceiling/roof area. I do not have the heater on all the time in the winter
as it is too expensive, so when it is switched off in winter, I have a cold
shed but no problems with condensation. I have a small electric heater and
once that is switched on, it is quick to bring the shed up to temperature
to allow me to work inside.
Benjamin Cooper: That's a really nice conversion!
caz3mc1: Hi Steve it's interesting that you didn't have any problems with
condensation did you leave an air gap between the insulation and outer shed
wall? nice shed BTW
Steve Hearn: Hi Benjamin, yes the full kit out has been worth it as the shed survives
the London winters with no problem and I do not even have to have the
heating on all the time, only when I am in the shed working do I switch it
on! No real issues with condensation so its all good! The insulation works
a treat! Thanks for watching!
MrLaCubanisima: Hi Steve, nice video! I am currently insulating my shed for the Miami heat.
How did you attach the insulation. Is it against the outer wall, or closer
to the interior drywall? Thank you in advance.
Benjamin Cooper: It's really good, I have a studio a lot like your's but haven't had the
time to kit it out with insulation or plaster, would you say it's been
beneficial? and have you had any issues with condensation? Thanks!
Steve Hearn: No air gap, just good proper insulation that is behind the dry lined
plasterboard that made my interior walls. So far I have not had any issues
with condensation and I am very pleased about that! Again, I think it is
very worthwhile adding proper insulation to a shed if you are converting it
to a office type use. Money well spent :)
Dan Woodcraft: What about door insulation? How did you ensure that there was no cold
filtering in through the door? Dan in Scotland
Steve Hearn: Thanks Ben, my brother who is a builder completed the conversion for me!
koolfoolable: How much does this cost in total?
Steve Hearn: The cost was around £1,000 for the complete conversion to a all year round
usable office/room space. Worth every penny!
Jamie Smalley: Steve, I am also interested in any condensation issues you may have come
across in the three years since you completed this conversion. Thanks.
