#VanLife Build Out Day 8 & 9: Wool Insulation

Day 8: June 19, 2021, 9am-12:30pm, 1:30pm-7pm &
Day 9: June 20, 2021, 1:00pm-4:30pm

On day 8 and 9 of my Van Life Build Out I put in the wool insulation. It is 100% natural from New Zealand sheep. I purchased it from a company called Havelock. I waited two months for the insulation to arrive in the mail so plan your build accordingly if you want natural wool insulation from this company. On day 8 I took a little break in the middle to go to an estate sale where I got an electric blanket for only $2! My parents and I also ate a yummy lunch with homemade strawberry shortcake for dessert.

On day 9 a friend came to help me van build. Originally maybe I didn’t want to use spray adhesive in case I wanted to take things apart later but my friend said it wouldn’t be a big deal to take the adhesive off later, so I was convinced and we went to the hardware store for some spray adhesive, I paid $12 for the Gorilla brand vs $6 for the Elmers brand because I wanted to make sure it was going to stick wool onto my van. It held up the insulation pretty well, so I think I am won over on using the spray adhesive to put up the insulation.
