26th January 2008 – The most important job while building a framework is to figure out where to put your stuff and to get an impression of how big every room will be. With chalk I drew the bathroom and kitchen on the ground. After I was finished I noticed the original idea was not that great. The kitchen was way to small for working in. I couldn’t even put some furniture in. On my plans I never had a big kitchen but I enlarged it by one meter.
Another important job was to plan where I should put some more weight, some ballast. It took me nearly an afternoon to draw the whole plan. When I was finished, I measured it and wrote it on paper for further plans.
I worked on the wood as well that was delivered. Since once the boat is finished, I can no longer get to the wood, so I’m protecting it now for the future.
