I have to vote for granite, slate or marble. I'm in the process of re-doing...everything. When I get to the kitchen, I'll use some kind of natural stone Smiley

    Thanks!  That makes it really clear -- from the first photo, it looked like the sides of the 2 x 4s were the metal structure under the floor.  What a great floor combo that appears to be - no wonder you're warm in 0 degrees over Christmas and New Years.

Of course, it might cause problems down the road if access is needed to anything below the floor.  Wink

We went with PolyStone only because I got a buy at the Scottsdale Air Park ,Meganite was a good option too.Wilsonart has a lot of options and they will sell direct to you with the installation manual.
The draw back to Corian like we used in the Eagle they do not sell to the public it is bought through a dealer and they charge the hell out of you to fabricate and install it lol I remember I paid $800 just for the sink

I don't recall ever seeing it before, it definitely is distinctive with smooth sidewalls and a CAT 3406. It would be worth finding out what happened to it.

No, I laid down 3/4" tongue and groove Advantech sheets onto the metal (actually I laid some thick sill seal foam on all the metal to provide a bit of thermal break and prevent floor squeakage), then on top of the Advantech sheets I laid premium 2x4's flat (you can see them in the photo) and then had the former fill flush to the tops of the 2x4's. Then I laid my final Advantech 3/4" tongue and groove sub floor over that. ...

the diy kits ( the 2 part 1's ) work good but be ready as the dry time is FAST or buy a lot of tips . my son has used then 2 times and you have to learn to have everything ready and as you go give the gun a light shot well you are moving to the next spot so it does not harden in the tip . they set fast so you can see how much it swells , so it is better to do 2 coats then 1 if you can , as not to put it on to thick and have to grind it off . it is not like the spray can stuff
the problem is it may cost the same $ in the end as a pro doing it ? only difference is you can go at your own pace
yes get a mask
I had my MCI done by a pro in 2005 at a cost of $ 1000.

Peter, I'll repeat a question from an above post, "are you removing the lower interior panels that are riveted on?" Please do indeed do this and have them spray foam there too. Trust me on this. As for the floor, don't worry about laying the floor yet. I just laid some 4x8 sheets of plywood down and the foamer walked on those. Don't rush to lay your floor if you're not ready. But do know that the foam gets everywhere. And I mean everywhere. So if you don't want overspray in your luggage bays, don't leave them open. And you are much better off having a pro do this. I'm a big do it yourselfer but this is a major nasty job and you'll waste time and foam trying to do it yourself.

I have not yet removed the lower interior panels that are riveted on, but I plan to.

I have heard that those panels are structural in nature, so I would like to keep them off for as little time as possible.

I would also like to foam in most of the voids under the floor.

I have inquired without success into most of the local insulation company's, I guess they just don't see any profit in it, or they see it as a liability.

As much as I would like to have it professionally done, my only option might be DIY.

Peter
