Even more wood

Even more woodSo that's the wood cladding on both the port and starboard sides done (ish).

Thanks once again to Fred for the help.

I know it's a bit messy looking down there, but it is a work in progress you know.

There are a few bits that still need doing right by the deckhead (ceiling), but that should not take too long.

The next step will be to put the wood on at either end, making the space down below look and feel so much better than ever.

The smell of all that freshly cut wood down there is simply wonderful.

    I am curious what is this space going to be used for?

    Will it have a flat deck? Why install the finished wall covering before placing the deck? I would think that the structure for the deck (lumber or steel), followed by the sub-floor (probably plywood) for the deck would have come before this wall covering stuff.

    Don't get me wrong -- I think it looks great, I'm just confused about the plan.

  5. Hi Andrew

    Thanks

    The insulation was good down there anyway, and without the deckhead being covered, it's hard to tell if things are warmer really.

  6. Hi Anonymous

    A long explanation, so please bear with me...

    The space you are looking at is the stern accommodation space, which is located below the galley and the boat's rear main deck (you can see the deckhead at the top of the picture).

    You can kinda see the plywood lower deck as it is where the white box is standing, that and the two tiers towards the stern makes up the 'floor' space in the accommodation area.

    From here, the plan is to build seating, lockers and bunks etc, the wall covering you now see would then form the back walls of these.

    I am putting in the floor finishing pieces last, as these are most likely to need to be removed for inspection, repairs etc.

    If this is not clear, or if you have any more questions just email me - my address is in my profile.

    Cheers

    Tim

  8. Tim,

    Its looking good, bet you can't wait too get the remainder done and the place emptied ready for fitting-out.

    I'm really looking forward to a night in my hammock, swinging amongst the trees of a pine forest....

  9. Hi Andy

    I'll soon have to make my mind up about how the place should be fitted out.

  13. Hi Andrew

    I wish - by the sounds of it, it was cut timer so likely to be no use to me anyway.

    Cheers
