I agree with this.

Seems most of the folks I've heard from who sprayed their own wished they hadn't. Huge mess, poorly done and wound up costing as much or more than having a pro do it.


DIY is not always the best route to take.

Well, helping my wife with her new-to-her computer. She's becoming an 8th grade math teacher. Since I have a Masters in Education, I've been drafted to help (hehe). In addition, the humidity is just sapping my energy. We're looking at the weather. So we're hoping for a cool front to come through so we can actually get some work done. Monday wifie is going to Bryan, TX to get more cabinets we won. Frustrating, but that's life for ya........

Once some of this work is done then we're going to get some quotes on spray foam work.

The saga continues......

Well, we got the cabinets! WoHOO!!!!!! Five of the brown ones tied together will make a really nice kitchen. We're doing some measurin' and 'siferin' before we get down to assembling and building.....

The white ones in the back of my one ton Ford are for the master bedroom to go under the elevated bed. Again more 'figurin' before puttin' together stuff......

Have a football game to bus drive on Saturday, so that build day is gone..... But the $$$ helps pay for stuff.....

These steel cabinets are HEAVY!!!! Just like our bus.....

Sorry for not getting pics sooner. Work and life got in the way. Met Tango and Albatross yesterday. Learned more and got more info in two hours than multiple posts here (nothing personal guys....). Nothing like seeing Tango's '46 Shorty in person! WOW, WHAT a bus!!!!! Gave me some ideas to work on with Heavy.

So, this is Heavy this morning. A few changes since the last pics. Got about half the 1/4 inch plywood up. Got the seat heater freed up. Got one of the four emergency windows in (for now). I'm going to adjust the install later to give the spray foamers a bit more freedom to spray behind and above the sill. My wife helped with getting the roof vent removed. I'm planning on sealing that tomorrow with any good fortune. Killed a HUGE cockroach hiding in the heater. That thing ran along the floor, just died tired......

I LOVE how the emergency window kicks out. I can see some AWESOME breezes and scenes coming to that window and the three others I have ready to go in.

Enjoy the pics. More to follow (if I remember the camera ).

More work done today. Got the hole where the leaking roof emergency exit was all patched up and water tight (YAY). Got the second emergency window installed and wifie got some of the crud off the rear firewall so we can begin to look at painting and whatnot for that area.

Pics from today:
