...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Snug as a bug

Alright!  We’re finally getting somewhere.  I have been at this insulation since before the fire, yes way back in September, and it’s finally finished.  Granted, there were several interruptions, distractions, etc. , but it took longer than it should have – even with the chilly nudge provided by Mother Nature.  It is easier to envision the final product with these white foam walls, so my enthusiasm and resolve are renewed.

To recap, the walls are 1″ Insulfoam with a foil backer facing out and the ceiling is buffered with 2″ foam.  I bought one sheet of flexible, 1/2″ foam for the rounded front end.  It is noticeably warmer when I wake up in Sparta,  even when the heater is not running – quieter too.  Remember, if you try this at home, make sure to leave at least a 3/4″ baffle between the foam’s outer foil and the exterior surface to ensure an effective radiant barrier.

Today I will fill all the remaining nooks and crannies with spray insulating foam and apply foil tape to all the foam seams to maximize their effectiveness.  Then, I will begin clearing off the floor so that I can pour the leveler next week, giving time for it to set over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

This 1/2″ stuff bends to fit

When you run out of foam wishing you still had your daughter’s pick-up. Yep, it all fit in my Volvo.

Somehow, I managed to create a palindrome, of sorts, entirely by accident
