The progress has been fast and furious on days 4 and 5 with the insulation, flooring and walls. Those things are a lot of measuring, cutting and placing. A lot of work can get done in a day with these steps in the building process if you keep a steady pace.
Jason placing the wooden strips on the floor in which the Styrofoam insulation will fit in between. The wooden strips are the same height as the insulation and will support the flooring that goes on top.
Jason kept the wafer board flooring, added wood strips to build it up and then added insulation in between each strip.
The insulation is laid. Now we will lay wafer board on top and then Pergo flooring on a section of the wafer board.
You can see in this photo that there are three layers to the floor now. The back 2 feet is the base layer of wafer board with Kilz primer and sealer on top. This area does not need insulation as it will be the “outside” kitchen area and not part of the sleeping area. From that point on there is another layer of wafer board placed on top of the insulation layer. The area with only the wafer board showing will be under our bed and never seen…therefore it doesn’t need to be pretty. Only a small 7 by 7 area will have the Pergo flooring that we picked out. That saved us a good bit of money!
The three layers of flooring are done as well as most of the insulation in the walls.
Adding the last section of the Styrofoam insulation in the walls.
Once the floors were in tact Jason and the girls measured, cut and placed the insulation for the walls in between each metal beam.
It is coming along and each step gets us closer to the finished product which will be a cozy home-away-from-home camper for our road trips!
