Fresh panties !?

Man what agreat feeling !
as we start to put the outside belly wrap on. I made the joke that it is like slipping new "sexy" panties on an old lady. (I'm 45 and consider that old)
We're using a new type of insulation on the floor and in the walls when they go together. It's the stuff that HVAC guys use to wrap ductwork with. seems this stuff has an R-8 value and is only 1 3/4" thick. Really easy to work with. Underside got sprayed with regular spray adhesive, and the used deck screws with bigo washers just for insurance. Think its going to make for a warm or cool trailer. more l8tr

Do you have an aluminum floor?

Pictures would be nice but I hear Minnesotans are hardy stock.

You have accomplished what many others dream about, like me.
