Adding more lights and running in the electrical cables.


All 6 lights wired in. Loads of light given off by them. I'm very pleased with it.




Saturday morning, time to hang the door.

Will be getting more wood for the door, need more of the same wood and some other bits, so will be making a list of the final finishing bits.

Nice Sturdy lock fitted with big coach bolts.



Prepping the floor.


First board going down.


Sunday, the day to get working on the floor.


Almost there.


Nipped out to Mustang gathering to see Chris WRX with the new renegades Hoodie. On the way back popped into Wickes to get some Celotex. I have loads of loft insulation left over, but don't want to have it too low to the ground. So installing Celotex low down and loft insulation higher up. At 4:17 a sheet and each sheet is 0.5m2, I would need (2.1X1.80)*(3.5*1.8)*2 = 30m2. So 60 sheets. £250, so just invested £65 as this will be enough to do the low down parts.




Now to start putting some panelling on.



Looking Awesome

Got more wood from Goodwillies. This is to finish off the outside. Wanting to box in the roof underneath, hiding the beams. Just really wanting it to look nice. Plug I needed some more to finish the sides and the door.

The van floor is 3meters long, however the planks of wood were up to 4.8m. I took my battery circular saw, and cut them down to fit.


Having to cut some fancy notches to avoid the beams.

Now it tucks in above the window.


Boxing in the roof beams, looks quite nice if I say so myself.

So thats where all the trees have goone in portsmouth
They are chopping the trees down in Portsmouth for better 5G coverage, so best use the wood for something.

This thread seems to have lost photos. perhaps the import from blogs missed them. What a pain.... I can view the original blogs, so I could copy in the photos manually.
