The Flying Dutchman

Well, it's here! Let the fun begin. I will post updates here, but the most detailed documentation will be on my blog. (see below). Right now I am looking at an empty slate. Unfortunately there's a few weeks of "real life" ahead of me so the planning will go a little longer and the actual doing will wait a bit more. I am spending my time fruitfully accumulating parts and pieces. Amazon is loving me!

And empty slate:

You will enjoy building it as much as using it.

Good luck! Keep us updated

Not just here, but in many different arenas have I benefitted immensely from people that took the time to document and publish. Auto repair, generator service, air conditioner repair, the list goes on and on. Youtube university is, literally, a treasure trove. So, I find it no more than reasonable that I do the same, and the best way I can.

So, with that in mind...... The Floor has started. (Tonight with a cliff hanger!)

Great idea on transferring the floor rib pattern on your 1/2 floor insulation for easy cutout and for screwing the ply down, genius
