Not a lot of news to report or photos to show today. The insulation work and subfloor installation continues. It is progressing well. It's really finicky trying to install the insulation into some of the metal channels in the walls. I don't really want to stuff the channel full as it is a fairly vacuous space and that would take a lot of insulation. Instead it's measuring, cutting, folding, carefully stuffing in and then unfolding in the cavity (kind of like a ship in a bottle) to check placement. Then refolding, spraying in adhesive on the van wall and folding yet again to press the insulation into place with my finger tips of a wooden stick for places I couldn't quite reach. Time consuming work! Tomorrow I will also start tracing so that I can cut a piece of 3/8" plywood for the first piece of the subfloor (all of the support slats and insulation are in place for that section.) Here's the one photo for today... our dog was wanting to see what was going on. She's old so I had to lift her in. She was actually happier than she looks in the photo!
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
