What a year. New house bought, eight weeks from making an offer to moving in! The large single garage, summer house and two garden sheds became furniture overspill stores so not much done to the car at all! Repairs to the rad fan relay and unblocking the heater hoses done, offside disc and pads changed today with the near side to do tamara, thank goodness for "arctic overalls"!

I tried to design my new garage within the Permitted Developement rules but couldn't get what I needed so went the whole hog through Planning for a 10mtr by 4mtr, 3.8mtr high double skinned, insulated man cave to house all my machine tools, benches and shelving plus a four post wheel free lift.

We've got the walls to height and the best part of the insulated roof on, still loads to do but not bad progress for four months work.

Hi Brian. Looks great (as in big and good). Are you going to cover the roof with GRP? No joke - I did the house extension flat roof with OSB covered with GRP edge moulding sections and the whole lot with roofing GRP finished with 'top coat' - looks great and much better/longer lasting than felt. Regards, Terry

Roger and Mikey, thanks for those comments, there's a mezzanine floor full width, 2.5mts wide fer storage above the workshop end which Mrs Pit Crew says will be the bedroom! When the lift is up, the runways will be on the same level so 'eavy stuff can be just carefully slid across.

Terry, option one was to use corrugated tin, pre-insulated panels but too expensive. Option two was the way you've done but again was mega bucks due to the size and too weather dependant. We dismissed felt and have gone for a heavy plasticised sheet over ply which covers the insulation which in turn is secured to ply boards on joists at a third the cost of GRP. This gives me the option of covering the underside of the joists in a fire resistant board to smarten up the ceiling.

Sounds a good and cost effective roof option.
