December 2002

I'm often asked how I will get this boat off site when it's finished. Well if the current level of rainfall continued it would float out ! Fortunately the floor is 3" above ground level and so far so good, but only just.
With all the Christmas festivities it's not been too productive a month. I've added extra studding at 2" centers, fitted a ring main of double sockets and fitted 80% of the insulation. I chose Rockwool RWA45/75 (45kg/m3 & 75mm thick) flexible slabs. They are very easy to work with and can be cut to size with a knife. They are fitted between the studding to leave a 1" air gap to the external cladding. This is followed by a vapour barrier membrane and a lining of 6mm ply.
