instead of using post quick reply, click on go advanced.

opens the reply window which has more options, attachements are there, needs to be under a certain size so photos may need reduced to fit

Chipboard.........Pros - cheap to buy.........Cons - heavier than ply, needs more support, absorbs moisture and swells, doesn't hold fixings as well as ply..........HB

Sterling board its a type of chipboard but coated with varnish on the side that goes outwards before putting up put a breathable membrane up.

I've had two layouts in the past from inch thick chipboard and it has been very successful. Not sure I would use it for walls of a shed though.

My understanding was that Locoman was asking if chipboard would be a suitable material for use as a baseboard in an insulated shed that was less likely to be cold and damp..........HB

Either way, much better alternative materials are available. Plywood springs to mind.
