30 yrs ago i plastered the whole house except for the room in question, no damp has appeared anywhere. So this room is going to have extra protection so maybe a thermal block then insulation and a cavity will be the route i take.

That seems like overkill to me. A simpler and effective solution would be to treat your outside wall as a single leaf outer wall like on a timber framed building. The inner wall would be 4 x 2 timber frames lined on the outer face with OSB and a breathable membrane. Insulation can then be used to fill the frames internally before adding a vapour barrier and overboarding with plasterboard. The frames would have to be erected so as to leave an air gap and because the outer wall would no longer benefit from internal heating to control damp, ventilation in the form of airbricks would need to be provided.

Would it not be more cost effective - and more appealing - to build a purpose made shed like structure in the garden rather than, in my opinion, ruin a lovely room ?

minus 8 here, we have resorted to parafin stoves, to back up central heating. My train room is over the top of my garage. Also need under floor heating. john

If I could only have a layout in a shed type building I wouldn’t bother.

That is why this room is getting the V.I.P. treatment, total make over will be in excess of £25,000.

Have it in the bathroom. Love it, it will be money well spent.
