Hello! So we decided on a 75 ford 72 pax! Finally got the thing gutted, grinded, and the floor primed.
We will be living full time in this thing come August.
We are on a shoestring budget.
We were gifted a wood burning stove that we will use for heat.
We are contemplating how to insulate this beast. I chatted with a Home Depot guy for about a half hour yesterday, and realized my initial plan might need more thought.
So, what do you guys think?
The initial plan is/was;
Floor- sanded and sealed metal (check!), then foam panel insulation, then osb boards as subfloor, then hardwood floor.
Walls- foam panel insulation where they fit, then wood over it. Leave the windows, but "frame" them with wood.
Ceiling- drilling many holes from the inside then spraying in Great Stuff spray foam insulation. Seal drill holes with caulk, then paint to help mask them.
However, now I'm wondering if this is the best option, especially with the ceiling.
I really like the look of the bare metal ceiling, and I am not sure if we have to time or patience to remove all the rivets in the side walls and the ceiling, install batting, then put up wood. I just know that winter will be cold and without ceiling insulation, it will rain on us from the condensation.
Let me know what you think about trying to drill holes in the ceiling and put in great stuff as insulation! Has it been done?!?
