Ministry for the Interior

I made a start on the interior today. It’s bloody hot and I’d rather be spending the day in the pool or at the beach.
I can’t get any nycel until the 6th of January so I’m going to use 17mm form ply for the floor of the pod. It’s overkill but I figure it’s pretty tough stuff and I’ll cover any exposed floor with a nice looking timber vinyl. It also saves me having to paint marine ply. I’ll still use nycel for the walls.
This is the workspace today.

Cutty has found a nice spot to take advantage of the view.

After the floor was in I went over all of the welds to check they were properly covered with cold gal. Considering I’m going to spend a lot of time by the ocean I want to ensure I do everything I can to avoid rust. I’ve done them once but it’s very easy to miss a couple.
