Re: Delurking to introduce ... "Resurrection Fern"

Updated the blog with a "vlog", actually. We didn't get much done this weekend. Actually, we got NOTHING done. But that's ok. Sometimes we all need a break. Right?

Thanks for posting the temperature differences in your bus since painting the ceiling with ceramic coat. It's great to have actual temperature readings. I'd imagine if you put in a ceiling vent, it would help vent the heat as well.

Enjoy your break!

Re: Delurking to introduce ... "Resurrection Fern"

Is there a link or source for the ceramic paint/additive?

Thanks!

Take Care,
Den

TygerCub: Oh, definitely. We are talking about at least two ceiling vents. Maybe more?!
We will have an air conditioner on board, but we really do not want to rely on it much at all if we don't have to. So the better ventilated, the better off we are and the longer we can boondock and all that good stuff.


Den: Here's the link to the place that we ordered ours from: http://www.hytechsales.com/index.html

We bought the 5 gallon size and it took exactly 2 gallons to put 2 coats on the ceiling of our bus. We're saving the rest for the roof. Hope this helps.

Re: Delurking to introduce ... "Resurrection Fern"

Hey guys. Just wanted to drop in and update you on what is going on with Fernie. Jim and I spent quite a bit of time on the floor this past weekend. After two long afternoons, we are about halfway there. Thankfully the other half won't be nearly as hard as the first. As you guys know, we built the frames for the toilet and shower and that meant that we had to measure, cut, fit, and caulk around them when we put down the floor. So that took up a lot of time.

The rest should go smoothly. We were hoping to get it done this week (before we head to Atlanta this weekend) but the weather may not allow it. So we are on standby right now, waiting to see what Mother Nature throws our way in the next day or so. Could be that we don't get the floor done for another 2 weeks. I'm trying my best to be patient. It's hard.

I must say, though, that I can already tell such a huge difference in the way the bus feels and sounds with half the floor in. No longer is there an echo when you walk. If you walk around the back, it's solid and quiet. Or at least much quieter than it has been. While it may seem slow, we are definitely making progress. So I feel really good about it.

I don't have pics today. Maybe I can take some in the next couple of days or maybe I should just wait until we are done with the floor. Hmmm. We'll see.
