With the door frames finally complete, meant I could push on with the ceiling - 4.2m lengths of cladding, above my head, on my own..... out of the 200 odd lengths I bought... I don't think there was one that was straight!  At least they co-operate when you straighten them out... but like a naughty child... you get one end in... and the other end naughtily pops out!  :veryangry:

At least you drilled holes for the lighting wiring to come through which is more than I probably would have done :-[

More wiring starting to go in..... unfortunately I was to see the sub mains cable again after the cladding went up....yes, you guessed it, the woodtink & his fixation about not having visible nailheads - fired a "hidden" cable pin (little bleeders are about 3" long!) through 2 of the cores - cost me a pretty penny finding that electrical fault!  :veryangry:



Have made provision for a feed to the outside of the van... I did suggest to the rest of the household that it could feed an outdoor branch line.... but that did not go down very well  :unimpressed:

One of the last messy jobs to do was grind/blast/scrape back the main structural beams - had been putting it off, but have finally done the one on the main entrance side, as well as the metal work on that side

This stuff puts a nice patina on the metal work to seal it up - something satisfying about a product that has "rust killer" in it's descriptive title  :thumbsup:

Give it time and the idea will take root by itself.

The more I see of this, the more I feel that we all need one of those vans.
Great stuff.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
