I could use some help here please…
I have a number of knee wall cupboards and drawers to put into a loft conversion that’s in progress at the moment.
The rafters, floor and walls will all be insulated, the cupboards will be made from melamine faced chipboard, extending from the purlins to the eaves. I’m wondering if this will create condensation problems, especially since I’ve been freezing my ass off in there for the last week or two.
Is this a recipe for condensation on the inside of the cupboards?, do the backs need to be insulated?, should I leave ventilation? is plywood a more suitable material? Am I worrying unnecessarily?
This isn’t a sealed roof space, so there will be a stiff (arctic) breeze in the winter at the back.
If anyone has experience of this kind of thing, I would appreciate your advice.
