Does anyone have direct (good) experience of a
supplier for a 3 x 3m (or thereabouts) garden
building suitable for occupation? By that, I
mean, you can put stuff in it (maybe a computer
and furniture) that won't spoil through damp and
condensation.

Looking online there seems to be 3 types: 25mm and
45mm thick plain walls, and 115mm thick insulated
wall construction. Don't want to go with the last
one because the price, understandably, rockets.

Insulation and air tight is the key. Otherwise it will be too cold in
winter and too hot in summer.

Try asking in uk.d-i-y

If you go for the cheaper un-insulated wall type, which is basically like a
garden shed, you will need to have sufficient heating during the winter
months to prevent damp and condensation. Un-insulated will have high winter
heating costs, insulated will still require winter heating during periods of
occupation but will be less than the un-insulated option. So which ever
option you go for you are going to need deep pockets!

get the 45mm wall one, and then insulate and line it yourself? you can get
"insulating" panels that you just cut to size between the rafters/supports
or even just fill with "loft" insulation if you want to be "cheap"... when
not in "occupation" use large plastic tubs filled with salt (3kg = less
than �1 in Tesco's) to help take humidity out of the air.

Those small cheap to run convection radiators are probably your best method
of heating, and don't forget to factor into the costing a "fuse box" for the
electrics.
