2495Hrs – Bitter Weather, Icy Work
I had intended to try and continue the momentum of yesterdays good work but the weather had other ideas. It’s turned bitterly cold again. The temperature is hovering around freezing and there’s a stiff Easterly wind blowing making it feel more like -5. Unfortunately Easterlies tend to blow right through the barn making it far to uncomfortable to work sensibly. The forecast says this is going to continue into next week which means my work rate will inevitably slow down. I’ve really had enough of Winter now.
To escape the chill I decided to move back into the port hull and continue work on the galley, in particular the ice box. I’d left the cabin in such a state that I first had to spend some time clearing up but then I set to making a mess again by cutting up 3″ dense insulation foam.
I’ve used a plastic kitchen bin to form the ice box set into two layers of 3″ foam insulation with all the gaps filled with expanding builders foam. I cut the bin off flush and once I’ve made a frame I’ll be able to make the lid which will also be insulated with the same foam and set into the worktop.
It should work a treat.
