Beginning a journey to live more simply…

Sealing up the Wheel Wells.

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010:

Spent some time after work to address the wheel wells and to tie up a few more loose ends.

The wheel wells are a spot in the tiny house that open up right to the outside, and thus need to be well sealed and insulated. Our strategy to deal with this vulnerability point is to use high expanding spray foam (Great Stuff). It provides both a water and varmit/insect-proof barrier as well as sound insulation for an area that is pretty directly exposed to the temperatures outside.

Also tidied up the last bit of electrical lines and boxes as well as finished the framing on the canned-goods pantry.
