Have yo looked at foamys at all... :thinking:
If you glue that 1.5 in. foam to the skins you will
only need some blocks to screw things too in the foam.
The skeleton would be unnecessary.

There's lots of reasons some of us prefer building a teardrop using wooden skeletons walls.


:thumbsup: Strong, lightweight and they'll last for generations if properly constructed.

I purchased Steve Frederick's Shop Manual and working through it and have even bought some of the lumber. I've tried sourcing the insulation but can not find any within 100 miles -- maybe more.

Any ideas? What about getting 1 1/2" and slicing it in half (thickness -- from 1 1/2" to two sheets of 3/4")? Any ideas on how to do this?

I live in the Boise, Idaho area.

Thanks again!


I believe lowes and home depot sell 3/4 Styrofoam.
