Houseboat Fit Out

original interior

Welcome to my first houseboat fit out blog. Tal'Kir is owned by James, my daredevil consultant. He bought her as a sail away, which came with 25mm closed foam insulation when she arrived. When James first got the boat, he couldn't wait to camp on it. Despite Tal'Kir having none of the comforts of home, he totally enjoys the new lifestyle of living on water. After going through the cold winter, he realised the original 25mm insulation would't be enough to keep the boat warm and toasty. Before we start working on the design and layout, we decided to add extra 50mm closed foam insulation to the walls and ceiling, and 25mm jablite insulation between the floorboard and the ballast. These extra layers of insulation will definitely improve the thermal mass for the entire boat.
