Now my plan is to spray a thin 1" foam over the styrofoam on roof. I bought a 600 board feet spray foam kit at HD. The problem is winter.....

I ran into another problem a few day ago. The steel roof is covered with black tar-like spray from inside. I glued styrofoam directly to this black tar and I noticed later some pieces started to fell off. I decided to add plywood strips to hold styrofoam pieces in place and spray foam over.... Here are plywood strips:



All this little things keep eating my time....

The show must go on.....
One reason I've spent a couple weeks slowly removing all that tar! Its been a real pita too.

Keep at it, don't get discouraged.

My situation is a bit different because I decided to have flat ceiling. I saved money on roof insulation by using styrofoam+ thin layer of spray foam but I will have 2" extra insulation (isoboard) above flat ceiling.

Spray foam is great but cost a bit.... Canadian Lowes just had 600 kit on sale for 589 CAD but I missed it by 1 day . Tried to call their office and they said NO, so I was pissed and went to HD to meet and beat their price.... Freaking Canadian Lowes.... never loved it now just hate it....

It is too late to be discouraged.... to much $$$ spent.....

You are absolutely right black tar on roof is a real PITA. While roof was cold everything was ok but first warm and sunny day brought me a bad surprise. But you know we are all tough here we are used to deal with PITAs.....

I'm VERY interested in the spray foam DIY kit. Your plan sounds like what I've been envisioning doing.

I don't know if you're aware of this, but I used a spray foam kit in my rig and posted a thread in the How-To forum: http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f10/ex...tion-8468.html

Thanks for asking. I'm doing better, but still unable to use tools. It's going to be at least several months before I can get back to work on my conversion. In the meantime, I've been remodeling my current floorpan to accommodate an addition person (my girlfriend) in the bus. She wasn't willing to sleep in the "coffin," as she calls it, so I'm adding bunk beds and will be towing (cringe) the Jeep instead of carrying it.

Good to here on the rehab.
LMAO, funny how the women in our lives tend to change the original plans.

My wife only wants one thing, a washroom.

Vlad...great work! You must be a tin bender or a body man of some sort?

A quick insulation update

Here is some progress:

I sprayed the foam on roof and some walls and air ducts:





I installed 2 5" air ducts and sprayed them as well

Foam spraying was easy and straight forward. I did expect more coverage but this was my first time using spray foam, so I wasted some here and there by adding too much.

I covered all openings with 6 mil poly and used 5KW construction heater to get right temperature.
