Re: Building my home

Cheers I’ve got 50mm insulation underneath the bubble wrap and it is fully vapour proof hence why I put it up and have pushed the insulation into all the gaps you cannot get kingspan in. I’m thinking of heavily Lined curtains and a windscreen cover for the front. The insulation I’ve used is recycled...

Well it’s not just this week, I’m preparing my sprinter van for full time living in, hopefully moving into it in March next year, a bit extreme I know but I just can’t bring myself to pay hard earned money to a landlord, Vannie will be mine and in fact is actually bigger than the room I’m in. 7AF26B...
