Our Vintage Caravan Renovation, Mobile Retail Space Project - Part 2
Once we got the caravan back to Santa Barbara and had laid out plans for how we wanted it to look, it was time for Demo Day. We gutted the interior all the way down to the steel frame. The walls were in pretty flimsy shape, so we decided to frame the whole interior out with 2 x 3s for extra strength. You can see the original skinny planks of wood that were used for framing the walls. It's hard to imagine how these short, stapled-together pieces held the trailer up for fifty plus years!
We stripped the floor down to the frame, took out the insulation, redid the floor joists with fresh wood, and then installed new foam insulation in between.
Then we had to remove all of the yellow insulation from the walls.
Removed the windows.
