Spray foam (floor) questions??

3 posts in this topic

I am building an 8*16 house with a V front. The trailer is made out of 2*4 tubing on the perimeter with 2*2 for cross braces.

Can I get away with 5/8 sheathing for the floor? Braces are roughly every two ft.

How thick should I have them put the foam on?

Do I have to cover the foam once it is sprayed or will it be fine being exposed to road salt, etc??

If I have to cover it what should I use??

And would you suggest putting the holes in before or after the foam? (i was thinking after and cutting them out with a sawsall).

I never insulated my floor, my thought is, cold air sinks and hot air rises. When you insulate you are not keeping the cold out as much as keeping the heat in. Would it Help? probably some. Worth the extra work and cost? Not to me.

will ice stick to spray foam? If yes cover it so the foam doesn't stick to the ice and frozen snow-slush on the lake.

What ever you do make sure it's closed cell foam and not open cell, covered or not.

    •   I'll help you here, but you're going to have to call the nurse to wipe yourass.
    • So, how many other votes, in a state where vote fraud is a way of life even though the establishment denies it, got changed?  And did they undo the fix as soon as Moynihan walked out the door?     Sounds to me like, at the least, some folks ought to lose their job.  Maybe the feds should launch an investigation under the voting rights act or one of those things.     Ha Ha, like that is going to happen. 
    • That's what I asked, whether the stories were different or just the headlines.   Bear stepped in on Jiggy's team and said they aren't going to bother to answer.    So, since you googled it, you must have a source and the answer to my question.   Well? 
    • Chaws really hit it on the head, we are a very small market industry in regards to ice fishing. Even the walleye industry is small potatoes to advertisers compared to bass. In many cases if you're not 1 or 2 in your product line you're either a garage/hobby company or going broke. I get a kick looking at the intricate paint jobs on some of the tiny ice jigs that get sold for a couple dollars, no way can they justify the time. 
    • Couple more pics.  Got all the plastic on and the floor insulated. 
    • Rather ride my Harleys to but its Minnesota and if nothing else its going to get cold soon. Put my bikes into storage and the snowmobile is siting in their place and ready to go. I know its going to get cold I just hope we get some snow with it this year. Sure would like to get more than the usual 2-300 miles on the sled this year.
    • No it'sreal and it's different same day editions of the paper.  Easily googleable.   It's basically what happens when your boy's policies change a dozen times over the course a few hours.
    • Ok, so we can take from your post that you are solid media backer and supporter.     No, your antagonist posting is.
