    Default Gaz builds an igloo ;)

    As the title says lol, could I have a recommendation for a extraction. I plan to use kingspan and silicon to form the groom between the trusses. Needs to be silent!!! Or at least not noticeable to next door lol

    Forgot the kingspan boards and go for rock wool and plasterboard. Much better at soundproofing and fire retardant. Them boards are to compressed for decent sound proofing and the noise travels through them easily because of them being solid. Decided which is the coolest place within the eves or fascia and drag your air in from there .
    Keep the questions coming gaz .
    I'll help as much as possible

    Morning BG

    Thank you mate, your groom is awesome so Id be very grateful for the help mate.

    Cool thats sound better, I will use plasterboard and rockwool then, Im planning to just use the two LED lights I have and put a heater in the groom. I will maybe change or add to lights later but new lights aint doable at the minute.
    My main issue is the extraction fan. What do you use BG?

    Probably be a 3 plants groom given my loft space. Wifes sick of the cabs in the bedroom

    I am planning on running an extension up there but how hard is it to put an RCD up there?

    Also does it need to be a fan to draw air or could it be passive?

    Thanks mate

    You could get a rcd protected extension lead . I've always ran a mains cable but at the time I was using 2no 600hps plus loads of other equipment. With the LED's I think a extension lead is ok

    Excellent thats a big relief lol thanks BG lights are less than 150 watts combined so the big draw really will be the heater and extraction lol

    Thanks mate
    I've always ran extraction but never had a intake fan and I work on the logical that what gets sucked out must get sucked in . I've always split my intake one low down and one high up . The high up one draws cold air in which naturally drops through the warm air creating movement.
    Think about it why is air conditioning always up high ?

    No not for that fan but for many I have. The same logic applies for this as any other soundproofing. Use fire retardant materials especially if covering any electrical appliance. Don't pack tightly as sounds travel through vibrations and anything that kills vibration kills sound. This is why rock wool is your friend. Build a box big enough to hold the fan and mountings for the fan and enough space so you can fit a small top hat to the inside and a very small length of ducting. I'll make a little drawing up later

    That block wall will provide decent soundproofing but to be extra careful build a stud wall but leaving a gap between your wall and the block wall .
    Obviously first job build a floor. 2nd job stud wall dividing block wall side right up to the apex . 3rd tho for me would be your ceiling and insulating over the top as you build it.

    Thanks BG, Ive measured up and with leaving a gap between the groom and the block wall I wil have H = 1.2m W= 1.6 D=1.2m? Is that even gonna be enough BG mate?

    Ill get some CLS delivered and do the studs and then board and insulate the ceiling.

    Door is a concern lol.
