Garage
starting my garage fit out

so, I moved into my new house last year and the time has come to address the garage. so I thought I'd start my own thread.
here it is


it is an attached large single.
the floor plan is


as you can see the 2 end walls are cavity walls, but the outside gable wall is single skin blockwork.

I am planning on putting up stud work on the walls and lining using either plasterboard of plywood to lining it. i'll also be putting a ceiling up.

I have a couple of questions thought;

1. when building the stud frames do I only attach them to the floor and the rafters or do I attach them to the walls aswell?

2. I'm going to be using kingspan insulation (or equivalent) do I need to put a moisture barrier on the wall side of the outside gable wall?

I will probably have more questions as I go, so please bear with me.

all suggestions will be welcome.

If you have a single skin wall I would put a moisture barrier up, for a few quid it will save ruining your hard work in a year or so when any moisture could make its way through

The stud wall will be fine just connected to the floor and ceiling unless you plan on putting anything particularly heavy on it. Just go with whatever is easiest to install at the time

When buying kings pan I always check gumtree etc, you often get people selling left overs which could be more than enough for 1 wall and would save a few quid

Looks like a nice space bud

Will make a good space, look forward to the updates.

As for the stud wall, as posted it should be fine fixed top and bottom providing you are using a decent gauge of timber for your studs.

Also if you do plasterboard it, remember to leave an air gap of at least an inch at the bottom between the concrete floor and the plasterboard or it will soak any moisture in the floor up and you will get damp patches on it.

For your kingspan, if you can't find any odd sheets on eBay, search for Kingspan seconds loads of it on there and will be fine for that and a lot cheaper than new sheets.

finally got all the stud work planned out & being delivered in the next few days, but unsure what to line the walls with.

we are having a new boiler fitted to the house in 2 weeks, so this is being moved into the garage

I was going to line them with plasterboard, but someone suggested using osb boards, does anyone have any opinions?

I would put plasterboard up and paint it, osb is fine if you don't mind the wood chip wall effect lol

Plasterboard will look better, plywood has a better finish than OSB, but again nothing will be as smooth as plasterboard! As for lining the walls, pop down to Jewsons/Wickes/any builders merchants and ask for a roll of vapour control layer. Gauge 5000 will do the job, anything too thin and the edges of the breeze block+muck will pierce it. Just slam that up and hold it in place with your batons!

As above, would also avoid plywood as a lining, if any moisture gets in it the veneers start to peel away
