Quick question guys, going to get this vapour barrier tomorrow, is this right?

Am I right in saying that this goes to the wall side of the stud work?

Cheers

Looks like you've got a busy few nights ahead!, as for the membrane I would use a breathable one (roofing felt like this one will be fine) rather than plastic DPM you linked so air can still get around.

You sure you ordered enough plasterboard?

Yep, I'm starting to think I got too much board.

Got one wall up tonight.

Finally, how would I join that membrame or would I just layer it

Got a good start then, yeah just layer it starting at the bottom of the stud and lap the next length over the top so any moisture that runs down it goes with the lap. It is usually marked on the membrane for 100mm and 150mm lap.

One thing that might be worth thinking about is if you plan on hanging anything heavy on the wall, try and plan where it is going to go and put plenty of cross members in the stud work so you have some solid timber to put the fixings into. Sorry if I'm pointing out the obvious but it's easy to overlook it and then wish you had put something in afterwards.

It's only the one wall that I need to use the membrame on isn't it?

Also I'm going to use kings pan insulation on the single brick wall, would that not counteract the breath ability??

There are 4 air bricks in this wall too & air will circulate behind the wall

First wall


This wall will be further strengthened as the boiler & units will be going on here

Also started to build the stud wall panels


And the panels on the floor as it's not level



Hopefully should have all the stud work up by the end of the weekend.

Comments & advice welcome
