Hate to bring this up now but...I sure hope you cleaned off, treated the rust under those window edges.

The outdoor pic was when I was checking for fitment. Before I taped it up and sealed it I sanded it back down to bare metal... just didn't get a pic of it.

Do you plan on putting the old metal back on the ceiling after installing the insulation. or can you go back with a different material like wood.

Ok, so long time no update... Death in my immediate family has slowed me down these last couple months. No new pics yet, but the walls are finally insulated and have osb up. The ceiling has its first layer of insulation and I'll be doing the second this weekend along with putting some 1/4" plywood up there kerfed to fit the bend of the ceiling. Gonna take the plunge and cut a hole for the water heater after work tonight, and hopefully get the 110v put in tomorrow. The kitchen is laid out with the h2o tanks and all that good stuff and I'll be starting on the sink/counter and plumbing asap. IF the weather doesn't go back to crap paint is just around the corner too. I'll get you guys some pics this weekend. And no, the interior sheet metal will not be re-installed... Our first voyage in July is just around the corner.

Yeah, my sheet metal doesn't look so pretty anymore.

I am curious to try putting some of this perforated metal on as an exterior window cover on some of the windows.

Power is in as of last night, the bus didn't burn down while I was asleep, so that's a good thing. As far as windows I say go for whatever you like better. I liked residential style windows better so thats what I used. The windows are all from Home Depot, due to horrible customer service and crap products I've stopped buying any supplies from Menards after the rigamarole of warrantying my entry door.
