Mike's extension & renovation (porch internals)

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

She did. Her bed used to be in the corner there, where the pot plant is now.

Love the lock Mike! Using steel from the wheelbarrow to make those straps is so creative - brilliant stuff!

:text-bravo:

I'm experiencing creative withdrawals when seeing these creative projects.

Ever since I built the porch, it has looked like this inside:

I decided it was time to make this a bit more presentable. This means insulation and lining the inside, ready for plastering. First up, battens all around the sides of each panel, set C.15mm back to allow for the plasterboard and plaster thickness:

Image

Next, cut the insulation to size, and push it into place:

To be very clear, this porch is isolated from the house thermally, in that there is an insulated wall and door between the porch and the heated part of the house. The porch remains unheated. So the insulation doesn't really have much of a heat retention purpose. I's main purpose is avoid having unventilated voids, which are to be avoided whenever possible.

Next came plasterboard:

Before I could plasterboard the ceiling, I needed to support the house end of the oak ridge beam, which is structural, and was only on a temporary support. I made this:

Image

I hate having that much sap wood in anything made of oak, but I only have scraps of construction oak left, so I didn't have much choice. Here it is in place above the door:

Image

This enabled the fitting of the ceiling plasterboard, which isn't easy to photograph:

Just fitting the plaster board makes a huge difference, I think the plaster will top it of.

A break? I'm cycling a thousand miles down to northern Spain in the summer, if that's what you mean. In the meantime, too much drawing, too little workshop time.

Hi Mike,

What thickness of wood wool board did you use on the porch, 15 or 25mm?

I'm envious of your Spain trip, I haven't been on a tour since our Sweden trip in 2015, I've just been too busy on the house.

PS could you check your spam, I sent you an e-mail the other day

Cheers

15mm, BTW.
