Alright, been moving right along.
Finished insulating the ceiling, insulation is held in now with friction and some foil tape. Wires for lights are run in the insulation (grooves cut) and speaker wire as well. The original bus had 6 speakers, I am cutting it down to 4. Easier to find head units that power 4 speakers, and 2 of them would be in awkward spaces anyway (one in the shower). No worries though, I will have a bangin' supplemental stereo
Blue tape is to mark where lights / speakers go, wires friction fit in insulation held in by foil tape. I have vacuumed the ceiling since.
9 mahogany veneer solid core doors, 3' x 8' I scored for free. Planning on using these for countertops and maybe partitions for the shower / bathroom, but not sure about that due to how freaking heavy they are. They are 90 min fire rated.
My layer between living space and insulation, tyvek. Held on with foil tape (love this stuff, very strong adhesive on it). Cut holes for lights and speakers and taped around them.
Panels to be tyvek'd
Interior side of panels. They have been scrubbed with bleach and hosed down and dried off.
I have finished tyveking them but haven't put them back up yet. The first one I attempted to at 11 pm Saturday night but the first one is at a weird angle and wouldn't line up right and I got pissed off and was tired so I called it a night. I may try again tonight. The rest should go up easy.
Notes thus far:
This foam board stuff is nice, it is expensive but has great R-value. The kerosene heater I have been using on its lowest setting and it is getting to be too much, even with no floor or side insulation.
If (when, rather) I were to do this again I would definitely have it spray foamed professionally. This board works ok but there are plenty of gaps still and it takes a long time to cut the small pieces for the curves.
Next up is fixing one last leak, welding in a few metal bits, and then resealing a few windows, taking out a few windows and putting blanks in, and insulating the walls with the same 2" polyiso foil board. Then, 1/2 or 3/4" foam on the floor overlayed with 1/2" osb. Then, let the building commence
