Surely the excellent view from the throne would have been a clue?

I have to say that if i had that setup in my garden, I would probably want to sit and admire it as well. Any tips you can share on convincing the better half?

I have a very large shed, basically garage sized. Recently, it was completely revamped under the guidance of my father in law. He put in proper insulation panels and the result is that it's hotter than I'd like in winter really (the impact is that I need the fan more in winter which isn't a problem). In summer it's cooler than it would have been otherwise but not so you'd notice. So, I would say that you can over-engineer things, even on a shed Rolling Eyes

Also, it's so well insulated that turbo moisture doesn't escape - I bought a dehumidifier to solve that problem which sorts out any potential damp issues very well. Smile

For me it turns out that fixing the old garage with a new door and side door (2.5k), plus a log cabin (2.5k), is the same as rebuilding the whole garage and making it 3m longer to make a training room (total 5-6k).

So probably going brick built for the whole lot now instead.

I've just built this - need to do the inside cladding - it's 3mx 3m - it's more than perfect for me - I will insulate it before cladding.
