Nice job, Joan!

I especially like the photo with all the clamps & braces... I've had to get creative with clamp-ups several times, too.

'Must be a great relief to be able to get the flooring down once again.

Gary- it feels SO good. Of course, now I'm semi-terrified of messing the vinyl up with unnecessary holes. However, I've realized that if I get a couple extra in places that don't show much I can just fill them with the stuff I plugged other small holes with. With the slight pattern in the vinyl they'll never even show.



Have to make a major table decision today.

Not making a decision about the table yet, but discussing the possibilities.

Joan,
Looks like significant progress! (and, looks good)
Don't know what you're planning on for the curved parts, insulation-wise, but something that worked for me on an old tear-drop build, was to use multiple 1/4" layers of polystyrene, instead of one 3/4"......the thinner stuff was a whole lot more flexible.
Just a thought...........
Gary

Thanks Gary- I'm just cutting strips to get around the part under the beadboard. For the ceiling I hope to do what this guy did. I have a source for the foam that is near me- reducing shipping costs. I can even pick it up if I want.

Most excellent!
Great use of old materials... recycling...........
Temporary solution, while already considering options for what you could do, if it doesn't work well in certain ways..........
Creative problem-solving. Gotta love it.
