I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "back side" - between the diffusers/wooden cladding (at the sides and front/back where there are no diffusers) and the insulation there are three layers of frost fleece - the same stuff you'd use in a garden in cold weather.

I inserted not extra moisture barrier between the top of the insulation and the tiled roof, as the roof was already covered with thick canvas type material when I bought the building.

So essentially the room "leaks" into the attick/loft space? Do you notice any issues with temperature or humidity control in your room?


Just curious because my current room has an 8 ft ceiling. It's not terrible acoustically, but I've been thinking of opening the drywall up as you did. There is nothing above cept void. I've been up there, it gets hella hot in the summer. Don't want that to get into my room below or cause unwanted condensation, or worse, mold.

Hi,

I don't have any problems with temperature or humidity - the room is obviously massively insulated, and I have both mechanical heat recovery ventilation and air conditioning.

When I'm running my A/C on the quietest mode it can struggle to heat the room, but it's still not that cold on a winter's day like today. If I put the A/C on a higher powered, louder mode I'd have no trouble at all. I only need to run the cooling on the very hottest summer days, which admittedly isn't that hot over here (about 25-6 degrees C).

Cool man, thanks for the response. This is encouraging information. It may be cheaper than I thought to raise the roof.

Did you ever get any photos of the totally finished build?

Just read through the whole thing and it looks fantastic. If I were you I'd put some photos on your website also, it's nice to see you're working in a professional environment etc and it's a shame that it's not plastered all over your site lol
