Thanks Mark but with two large windows now installed, it's not a gloomy as it once was. In warm weather I tend to work with the doors wide open anyway, but I take your point. I could also have fitted Rockwool insulating behind the chipboard as there's enough room but finally I had to call a halt to the expenditure. We ain't as rich as the Merrycans ;-)
Heating is an interesting subject too. I've tried Paraffin heaters, radiant heaters, electric fan heaters (like greenhouse ones) and now an old Calor Gas heater, and the Calor Gas heater seems by far the best. I did once think about a small wood burner, we have one in the house, but cheap secondhand ones rarely come along. I find as long as the inside temperature stays above 4 or 5C, I can cope, although a friend recently told me he puts a number of fan heaters on as he likes it between 21 and 23c. Our living room doesn't get as hot as that!
