Re: skoolie days

Ok, so this is the latest up-date on our project. We have all the seats out and 1/2 of the floor up. (wow... that was not as easy as we thought it would be) We are still trying to decide what exactly to do with the heaters.(so this is the delay for the moment) Will post again tomorrow with pics of the project.

Re: skoolie days

Well today we got alot done. We got the rest of the floor up. (execpt the little part under one heater) We got the walls opened up to find that they have been very well insulated and are dry.

Question... would it be worth replacing the fiberglass insulation with stryofoam?

I say, yes. Go to a home show and look at the demonstrations of air currents through fiberglass insulation. Get some condensation into it, and in cold weather fiberglass turns into a block of ice with no R value (ask me how I know). Heating and cooling of the space will create a vacuum that will draw either cold outside air or moist inside air through any possible opening.

You've done the hard part already, exposing the old insulation. But only you know what your budget, your intended use, and your climate would be. If I was cash-strapped, and I had to decide between foam insulation or wall material, I would have bare foam first. But then I live where it is occasionally below zero° (F), so as always, your mileage may vary.
