We have 2" of snow and then heavy ice coming tomorrow.
I spent the whole day in the bus working on insulation. I spent the morning finishing the floor. I got all done but in front of the front wheel wells. I then started doing the roof. With the curve I figured it will be more work then the walls. I always like to get the hard part done first.
It was more involved then I anticipated.
1) My bus is very dirty, so I have to wipe down everything before I can glue the insulation on.
2) I thought the middle of the roof would be easy, but the 2" insulation would not bend to it. SO I had to score the pieces to get it to bend.
3) When I cut the first piece from the 8' x 4' sheet the left over is 7" to narrow. So I have to plan well so I don't have to much left over scraps. I got it down to five sections out of three sheets.
4) I had to cut my scrap plywood to make pieces that I can screw into the supports to hold the middle up until the glue holds. I'm using 3M 90 spray glue. This stuff is strong.I grabbed a hold of the insulation and tried to pull it down. It did not budge.
It took me a while to figure out how much to score the insulation to get a good fit. I found that if I cut a 6" section and score every 3" in the middle 4" it does the job.
After scoring the piece you can see that it already curves.
Here are the first two sections up showing the plywood holding the middle up.
By 10:00 I got half the roof done. With only one person it is a slow process. If I had two more people, we could start an assembly line and get it done faster.
Now that I have a process to get the roof up. I'm going to work on the walls and the work out how to do the remaining 1.5' of the roof where it curves sharper. I can feel a difference on how warm it is in the back compared to the front. I really thought that since all I had to do now was cut insulation and not cut plywood, this would go a lot faster.
