The layouts home is a Heavy Duty 4 feet x 16 feet Pent Shed squeezed along the side of our new build bungalow. Loft insulation placed along all the walls and door and then lined with tongue and groove, roof lined with thermawrap reflective insulation. Shed is sat on top of 4 x 4 battons which were placed on slabs to give plenty of airflow. I have a thermostatic controlled oil filled heater along with a dehumidifier because i live in the North East of Scotland it gets very damp most of the year, thick rubber matting has been screwed to the floor also. So far.... warm and damp free!
