    I fall in the category of some insulation but now not enough in my 1970’s timber framed bungalow to meet current energy saving expectations.The external wall is made up of from 112mm brickwork, 50mm cavity, 20mm fibreboard attached to 100mm timber studs and faced internally with 12.5mm foil backed plasterboard. I plan to remove the plasterboard, room by room and insulate between the studs, staple a vapour barrier before fitting new plasterboard. The insulation will be roll mineral wool to the thickness of the studs. Is this enough to comply with current building regulation? This is something I am confident in carrying out myself (zero labour cost).I am nervous about a solution that fills the cavity-risk of interstitial condensation. I have already insulated the loft to 300mm mineral wool.
