Stego wrap featured in this video is $454.50 per roll. A roll is 14ft x 210ft. This is 4.26m x 64m. So for a 7m x 9m home 1 roll would do it.
A good video on youtube about how to insulate a floor.
Website to calculate how much 100mm flooring I need.
The price here comes in at about 50 euro/m sq = 3150 euro
This is Recticel FitForAll and here it’s sold in 30mm and 60mm sheets. But they are available up to 100mm (30mm, 40mm, 60mm, 82mm & 100mm) according to the Recticel Site
This would result in a cost of 945 Euros for 7m x 9m (15 euro TTC / m sq) 60mm sheets
From the following site, 100mm sheets are available for 28 euro / m sq (= 1764 euro for 7m x 9m)
GA4090 ( 1 304,52 € for 69.12m sq ) 90mm sheets

Conductivité thermique : 0,038 W/(mK)
100 mm : R = 2,60 m².K/W
180 mm : R = 4,70 m².K/W
200 mm : R = 5,25 m².K/W
180mm boards are 18.75 Euro/m sq = 1181 euro for 63 m sq
Video on installing floor insulation
Under screed (on slab) possability.
This EPS is much cheaper than more promoted branded stuff and probably just as good. Here is a company in POLAND
Another good video on how to insulate the floor below. Has key details of where to put a vapour barrier – GRADE -> Gravel (with drainage) -> EPS foam -> Vapour barrier (also holds the foam down before 4″ of concrete is poured – > Concrete
Good video on insulation below slab from Kingspan
Thin sand blinding to level ->appropriate damp proof membrane (well lapped and folded), should lap high enough to connect with, or form, the wall damp proof course -> eps at least 2cm thick vertical around perimeter, top should be level with top of the floor screed (damp proof course), layer and overlap eps -> overlap eps boards with polythene sheet (as a vapour control layer), make sure polythene sheet has 150 mm overlap
Useful links for locating RT2012 wood burners
Our preference is for the Artwood Gala as reviews suggest circular stoves are harder to clean!
This link leads to an article on how much power the stove needs.
Based on the above article I’ll calculate what size we need. We’ve been told we’ll need 10kW for a 120sq meter house so I’ll be interested to see what this article thinks we need.
From the calculation about 10kW will do the job.
The recommendation for a 120m2 house is a 10kW stove.
The stove we need must be one that supports a direct, external air supply – in French it’s raccordement air extérieur (directly translates as external air connection) – generally done through 125mm ducting.
Some potentially useful discussion on pistonheads.
The external flue needs to rise to 0.4m (40cm) above the max height of the roof according to building regs.
Our preference is for one that takes 50cm logs.
Precision Roofing Services
Soffitis derived from a French word that means “formed as a ceiling” and the Latin term “to fix underneath.” The soffit is the visible part beneath the roof eave’s overhanging section. Its basic function is to help with attic ventilation as it has small holes that allow air through for circulation.
Researching companies that will carry out the Etude Thermique (Thermic Study) for our come and provide us with the certificate of conformity to RT2012 to add to our Permis de Construire document.
This is the one that An used and paid 199 Euros for.
