#VanLife Build Out Day 11 & 12: Siding

Build Out Day 11,
July 3, 2021, 9:00am-1:30pm
Build Out Day 12,
July 4, 2021, 8:00am-6:00pm (Yes I spent my 4th of July Van Building!)

It’s time to put the siding and the ceiling up. I was going to use vinyl coated plywood, but I was not having an easy time fitting it up and attaching it. I went into the garage and there was all the extra duct insulation (I don’t have Reflectix, I have R-8 HVAC Duct Wrap Insulation), so decided to experiment with making panels out of it. I stuck them up with Butyl Tape and Foil Tape. It was much easier and faster than chopping, fitting and affixing plywood, and I’m in a little bit of a hurry, so this will have to do for now. I also had to reinstall the insulation on the ceiling. This time I used string and spray adhesive instead of just the spray adhesive. It was more tedious and time consuming, but hopefully it will stay up this time.
