The Cabin Move, part 2
I talked to the mover today. The cost to move that cabin surprised me, but they were included in the price.
Insulating under the cabin has been a question for me, but apparently may not be too much of a problem. The mover said they generally build cabins with floors pre-insulated, and that insulating the floor of a cabin that’s already been built might be difficult. He suggested skirting it and either insulating the whole floor-which he admitted might be difficult-by running batting underneath between the skids or insulating the skirting just like if it had a crawl space. (I’d probably run 4x4s all the way around and seal them well, since it already has skids under it and that will be it’s height anyway.) I’ve also considered blowing insulation under it. I’m a bit concerned that there would be moisture buildup if I did that, though. A vapor barrier would probably be a good idea but might not help enough. The skirting idea ought to work.
After that, the debate is still over what to do first. Tear out the linoleum and add nicer flooring, I think. Then find a bathtub made for an RV and build some walls, I think.
