space on the left with no underfloor heating pipes is the location
of the staircase. It is usual to put the ground floor manifold
in an understairs cupboard, as this one is, as it must be accessible
for occasional pressure checks. On an upper floor, a manifold
is a boon in a linen cupboard, which will be kept nice and dry.
You can also clearly see the timbers left for the position of
the partition walls. A note about the insulation used in this
project - We do not recommend using lightweight foil backed
insulation because its lightweight structure does not hold the
pipe well, and it also deteriorates with foot traffic.
