Options- Sheeting and Translucents

Single skin uninsulated may be OK for garaging, but double skin insulated is best. Composite panels on walls may be appropriate, particularly for office areas.

Translucents are cheap. It is best not to have them in the roof but as hit and miss panels all round the tops of the walls/doors. If they are used in the roof they should have galvanised wire mesh inside.

It is good practise to use masonary in the bottom 2.1m (7') of wall to make windows and walk through door easier to install.
