    Hi,
    I want to convert an outbuilding I have into a habitbable room
    Its a single skin building with concreete floor DPM on bricks only.
    It currently has battons on breeze blocks and uses polystyreen insulation and some clear plastic. acting as a membrane then coverd by thin MDF pannelling. sort of like a scout hut type affair.

    I wanted to ask whether I should
    a) Rip it all out and start again
    b) Keep what I have build a stud wall over the top with sound proofing and insulation etc I dont think I would need a membrane in this instance.
    C) remove the mdf panels and do the studwork fixing into the exisitng battons (not sure whether to put a membrae in on this option

    The floor will have to put a membrane down and build a suspended floor above the dpm layer on the brick walls.

    Maybe this is all wrong if so could someone put me onto the right track.

    Thanks
