    oh, did you have the ATLAS system ? Looks very good but unfortunately about 2K more expensive than cutting and glueing the upstand.

    Polar Quote was OK- £140 m3 for the Jackodur Plus board which has an excellent value of 0.027. Also found Jackon UK that has given good quotes on Jackodur XPS to. Insulation4less have Fibran XPS at a similar price to- 100mm at £12.50m2

    Unfortunately Insulation superstore have suddenly increased their price from £69.90 a pack to £141 a pack... blaming a price increase from the supplier. Back to the drawing board!

    Evening all, Had a very (very!) good quote from @PeterW advice- thanks. However, what is the best product to use XPS or EPS or do they perform equally under a slab?

    XPS pricing

    Afternoon, My house has started- I have dug the hole and it has been inspected by BC. I need to order the insulation for under the slab this week. I have had around 10 quotes for EPS and XPS. The SE has said I need 300kpa which makes EPS very expensive. The cheapest XPS 300kkpa I could find comes from Germany and is about 1.5K cheaper than ones made in the UK?-DOW, Kingspan. Polyfoam. Plus a few others imported-Fibran, BASF. I contacted some of the manufactures but the all refused to sell to me and directed me to a distributer with their markup! Seems crazy to me and the Kingspan Factory is an hour away! The base will be have be U.10 and I will be cutting the gluing(or foaming) the 200mm upstand as this was by far the cheaper option. comes in at about £30.20m2 and £320 for the 200mmx200mm upstand (47m) Anyone found a good price/supplier? Cheers Matt

    DIY Insulated Foundations

    I noticed you used XPS in your photos. The slab looks very level! That is very similar to how I was thinking of doing the concrete.Was he on his own?

    DIY Insulated Foundations

    Just about to start on my slab... any tips? I am planning to use Jackodur XPS for the insulation as it works cheaper than EPS. I am worried about getting the slab level and smooth!

    New entrance over council Verge

    @Jml Thanks will follow that up tomorrow with the council here- hopefully as straightforward as yours was!
  13. Anyone had any experience of crossing council owned verge to access the road? I have planning permission to build a house and make an entrance onto the road but this will mean crossing over the verge-approx 1 metre deep by 8m long. I have emailed the council for advice but no response yet. Any ideas of the best way to get things moving? Thanks Matt

    Matt- Shropshire/Powys border

    Moira- looking great! I have visited PYC including their new factory in Welshpool. Unfortunately their quote was the most expensive. @ProDave- sorry I did not explain properly- my stud wall will go to the outside of the oak frame, essentially a separate structure (but will be tied in). I am looking at smartply passive OSB or a similar product for the internal air barrier. MBC quote was a competitive quote from the ones I had but still expensive and did not include the slab (20k).
