Hello everyone,

I have a garage I would like to convert into a small room and the external wall is single skin brick...

I would like to know whether to D&D it with 50mm insulation board or timber/metal stud and insulate?

I have the skill set to do either and realise that D&D would be the cheaper option but would like to know if this holds any major cons in comparison to studding it out?

Thanks
Dan
