Many of you reading this also follow us on Facebook and are acutely aware that we began actual construction this past weekend. We milled our floor joists, bolted them to the trailer, and installed our EcoFoil White Double Bubble Insulation. It was not nearly as difficult a process as I thought it might be and after a solid days work this is what we have to show for it. (note: running time is 10 minutes even so grab some popcorn and turn the volume up!)
So? What do you think? Does Norm Abram need to watch his back? In all honest, the EcoFoil really was quite easy to install. If we had it to do over again we would have taped the three strips together on the ground and then moved it onto the trailer as one big “quilt” of insulation. In retrospect I also would have worn more sunscreen. It never occurred to me that looking down at aluminum foil, if you will, as it reflected the direct sunlight would be such a danger to my pigment. I got sunburned though!
In the spirit of full disclosure though I do want to add that EcoFoil joined us in mid-March as a sponsor of the Tiny r(E)volution providing to us the following products:
- 500 Sq Feet of Perforated Radiant Barrier for attic joists to keep heat out. Regular price $99.00.
- 500 Sq Feet of White Double Bubble Insulation for the underside of the home. Regular price $184.99.
- 150 ft of 3″ White Insulation Tape for the seams on the double bubble. Regular price $16.99.
