Mind and use some of my tips posted awhile ago. They should help you reduce heating costs.

Looking very nice tattoo, but it dosnt look like you have much insulation? or are the roof beams for show?

the building his four course of breeze blocks with timber frame ply on outside
this might be quicker lol
insulation in all wall cavitys
(the beam are were the water butts are going theres 3 inch of insulation in roof cavity pvc just a cosmetic touch plus was thinkin of condensation

That def answers question, and i must say it looks an excellent fish house, i recon you will spend a lt of time in there, i know i would.

Emmmmm, think you've made a mistake mate.
the fibreglass will get soaked in moisture once everything is running, even thou it looks like you may have tried to seal the joints.
i'm talking from experience here, I helped build my mates fish/beer house and 6 months or so down the line we had to rip out the insulation, it got so damp it smelled wrong! :(

this is same way my old fish house was insulated and there was no signs of damp when i dismanteled that one
the inside is all pvc cladded which is stuck to frame work with sealant
the old f/house was no problems just an old shed converted which in the end was not big enough
so thats why i built this one

what made you use breeze blocks and timber rather than using all breeze blocks?

being a joiner i suppose.breeze blocks were just to stop water getting at timber.
