    To house boiler and megaflow, tumble dryer, bikes, garden tools, etc. I am limited on space as I have about 2.5 between my house and the boundary, which is the neighbours house. I plan to have a pitched slate roof to match the pitch of my roof which has hips. My question is, in order to preserve internal space, what is the thinnest wall I can build in order to meet regs?

    4mm with glass
    Yup, glass - beat me to it Tony - surprisingly cheap too :)

    Have you thought of GRP-clad polyurethane foam. A simple mould from 'conti' board could be made to accommodate any returns for doors or windows.
    Given what you are going to put into the space you should probably try to make it frost proof so glass is not such a good idea.

    What ST said about GRP-clad polyurethane foam sounds good. You can get sectional panels used to make bespoke cold rooms and walk-in fridges that have good thermal properties and are maintenance free. Thickness from 50mm upwards.

    Having googled, I can't see any evidence of the grp stuff? How thin can a conventional timber frame be - 100mm plus plaster?
