Well, with the intention of a full day on Sunday to get the external insulation installed and plasterboard all done, I slept until lunch time, bugger!
Apparently I pushed a bit too hard on Saturday, shit happens!
Making sure to spend a lot of time planning and implementing the best possible solution to keep the room cool (west facing single brick wall was a horrible idea to begin with, but these things happen), I’d opted for the airgapped sarking and R2.5 Wall insulation which by my calculations should provide something around 3.6 R rating before you include the wall and plater boards .2R rating (may not be correct just guessing haha).
This insulation sells itself as ‘no itchy & soft’, while that is very true to a degree, not feeling the instant itch left me feeling comfortable to be less worried about contact with my body.. Lets just say, a few unintentional rubs of the insulation on the arms and I was less than impressed with life.
Despite the slight discomfort I was now faced with I kept at it and closed the door on Sunday night feeling like I’d come quite far over the weekend.
Unfortunately with no light in the space yet I had to use the flash and it’d still a little dusty! (may also notice the ducting at the top, the extraction vent has been installed too.)
Still need to do the flushing of the drywall and a whole lot more work but it’s moving along nicely!
