    I have a Sandy Campbell 3" boiler I used the plans from this forum. I want to wood plank the outside. Do I need to put some ceramic insulation on first then install the wood over the top.

    Lay a layer of felt and then dress with tarboard and lay wood planks around + metal ribbon.

    Hi. I have just posted a Youtube video showing the building of my vertical copper boiler and some of the photos show how I clad it with Kauri strips.

    Have a look, it may give you some idea of what is needed -
