Insulation
 
 
If you are planning to use your cabin in all seasons, you will need to add some kind of heating.
 
To avoid costly heating bills, we would advise you to insulate the roof and the floor of your cabin.
 
This job is best done when the cabin is being installed, as it can be done to a better standard.
 
Cabins have pressure treated foundation bearers of 45mm or 68mm tall which sit on your base to support your cabin.
 
 Your tongue and groove floorboards sit on top of the bearers which leaves a void in between each beam.
 
 You can therefore insulate between your bearers with either 40mm or 50mm thick Celotex type insulation.
 
You could just use thin 25mm insulation, but this does seem rather pointless when you have a larger gap.
 
It is not much more expensive to buy 40mm or 50mm and do the job properly!
 
If we are installing your cabin we can also quote to insulate your roof and floor.
 
If you are installing your own cabin we can advise you how to insulate, and estimate materials required for you.
