I am proposing to convert the rear of my garage into a kitchen and
currently have an enquiry in at the planning dept to asseertain
whether permission is required (no external alterations).
However, even if permission is not granted I would like to put the
floor down as the exisitng floor is compacted earth. Prior to firing
off a query to the bulding regs people I was proposing:
Dig down and isnstall: (From information received in the pub) !!
DPM (brought up to wall dpm)
Does this sound about right. (100mm slab sounds a lot to me).
Secondly, all my previous concrete work has been ouside where
expansion joints are needed. As this will be in a frost free
environment will I still need expansion joints? The area is 4.4 x 2.5
m I was thinking of just putting shuttering round the edges for
tamping. Any ideas or suggestions anyone.
