Constructing Interior Walls
For one day only, we were extremely lucky to host Phil's dad, Sylvain. What an amazing treat!! He drove all the way from Sherbrooke, Quebec to help us construct our interior walls and got them all framed in a single afternoon -- something we figured would have taken us 3 days and would have been half as nice.
We have 7 interior walls enclosing our utility closet, toilet room, shower, pantry, and fridge. Sylvain, a contractor by trade, came up with what we consider a revolutionary plan by using 1.5" metal track framing studs. Everything we had seen on the internet had people attaching small pieces of wood to the ceiling where the studs would be going up. Before Sylvain, we made a sample interior wall copying this and looking back now it was rather comical thinking copying what we had seen would actually hold up a sturdy wall.
The best part of Sylvain coming to visit I think was Phil getting to be with his family a little bit. He's been so great to come and share my home while we work on this project and I know he was very excited to get a chance to see his dad and share this experience with him as well.
Thank you for all your hard work the other day with us, coming all of that way, and really transforming our bus. You did so much work, and we are so grateful! Safe journey home and please join us anytime!
