Operation Insulation –Day 3
24 Jul 2014
More of tedious same today. This time we could see the light at the end of the tunnel –at least as far as getting the ceiling finished goes– as, in our insulating frenzy, we reached the bulkhead just behind the cab The last roof panels. Just behind the cab I also discovered that one of the neighbourhood cats has found a pretty uncomfortable looking place to take a ‘cat-nap’.... [ Read More ]
Operation Insulation –Day 2
22 Jul 2014
More ‘working with your hands above your head’ fun today, as we entered the second day of our marathon attempt to get Herman insulated up and sorted out a bit more, before we go to Ireland next month.

Freshly armed with my new stash of wood, I thought I’d strike while the iron was hot and crack on with panelling out Herman’s roof. I’m going to start at the top and work down, as I’ll need to get some welding done on the holes in the floor, before I start boarding over the lower regions. Anyway, we’d already insulated the inside of the roof with that bargain bucket fibreglass we got a few weeks ago.... [ Read More ]
