48. Insulation, vapour barrier and drywall are added to the clubhouseWe decided to deviate from the original plans and insulate only the ceiling of the clubhouse. Because the building could only be legally used from May to October, we reckoned that insulated walls would likely not be necessary. Our planning called for drywall joints to be covered by wood battens rather than conventional mudding and taping. This was a practical solution that would allow us to insulate the walls later on if we so chose. These simple battens offered us both economy and flexibility in terms of interior finish. We could use them to achieve anything from a rustic to a stately look. I hauled the ceiling insulation from Winnipeg and installed it with help from a fellow member. Another member helped me attach the vapour barrier. We passed inspection easily. I borrowed a member's trailer and hauled the drywall for the ceiling from Selkirk to the park (three loads). A skilled member with a drywall jack then took the lead and gave a small group of us necessary guidance as we tacked all the sheets to the ceiling in just one weekend. I drove the rest of the screws over the next couple of days. Near the end of June, Kenroc Building Materials Co. Ltd. of Winnipeg delivered a large order of drywall for the walls. After I added sound insulation to the washroom walls, a small group of us began drywalling that area.
And with that, my construction work at Naturist Legacy Park came to an end.
