"I thought I should send you a picture of the panels we use in our garden buildings. Sweden wants to be the world's first oil-free economy within the next 15 years and that means the oil-based expanded foam type insulation found in SIPS and many other garden buildings just isn't an option. Instead, we use a thick 120mm or 145mm layer of glass wool insulation, composed of anything up to 80% recycled material. This type of insulation is also an ideal way of soundproofing a city garden office as well as keeping it warm."Mark will also have a stand at the EcoBuild Show, Earls Court, 3-5 March 2009 and suggests this could be a good time to meet up with other shedworkers and suppliers. As he points out: "Even if readers already have a shed, there are loads of credit-crunching ideas for powering, lighting and insulating their home office. It could be a good place to meet other shedworkers and do some networking plus the chance of a strong coffee and Swedish biscuits on our stand." You can apply for an invitation directly from Garden2office's site.
