Now, Where Was I ?
Another clearing and cleaning session today and I’m now happy that I’ve got the barn looking like someone owns it again and that I can work in comfortably. Next job was to take stock of my ply and timber and I was pleased to find that I’d actually got the 4mm ply needed for the cabin tops already in stock, I’d completely forgotten about it. I also spent a goodly amount of time with the plans and build instruction book refreshing my memory and clarifying what to do next and what materials I need. The next job is quite a big one – making the sandwich construction cabin roofs and decks. I want to get these made so that I can dry fit them and ensure that the cabin sides are right before gluing everything. I first need to finish making the mould and also need to decide on, and source the sandwich material. This can be Balsa, Styrofoam, Polystyrene etc, it just needs to be fairly dense, a good insulator and able to take the epoxy. I’ll get this sorted by the end of the week. It’s the big Beaulieu Boat Jumble this weekend so I’ll be heading down there to see what bargains I can pick up so that means it’ll be next week before I can start work proper…… Can’t wait!
