Been working on the bus the past 3 days.

Got all the holes covered up with fiberglass, painted the floor, painted the stairs with herculiner, and also was able to start my floating floor. Got 1 8ft section completed.

Also started something new with the YouTube channel. We went live!

I was at the bus from 10am-6pm today. I have 95% of the floating floor complete. Sorry its not in this video. I have about 5ish more to go before I get to editing it.

The floating floor kicks ass though. I will try and get a pic up as soon as possible.

Floating Floor?



I have 90% of the floor complete. First video of quite a few. Still not done editing all of them. Let me know what you think.

looking good! Does the plastic help prevent condensation in the interior when the weather changes?

If you were just building a free floating floor, why the studs? I am going to assume to fasten down things such as walls and cabinets? If so, you may want to add one in between the center and the out side studs because #1 floor compression, you don't want the insulation to break down and sag, and #2 if you haven't laid out your floor plan and have something that needs to be fastened on the off center of the studs, the only thing you have holding it would be plywood and your flooring. Just a thought. Good job so far!

From my understanding it is to prevent moisture from going into the insulation from the metal floor below. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

The studs in the rear are for building a "sunken bed" as well as to secure my fresh water tank. Going forward in the bus I lay them across for support as well as to attach some items to as well.

Nothing will be attached only to the floor. Most Items will also be attached to studs that will be going along the wall. (that is the plan at at least lol)

Thanks Doc
