The Route 104 Science airstream is starting to look more like a space station as we worked to finish installing the insulation in both end caps. Our next step was to install the interior walls. We decided to go with peg board for the main side walls for its flexibility, cost, and functionality. We envision making great use of the peg holes to change what and how we hang tools, signs, or other materials on the side walls. For example, if we are using screwdrivers, and hammers for a program or event, we can use specialty hooks to hold these in an accessible place while we use different hooks on a different part of the wall to hold signs with important information about safety or about the science behind different types of fasteners.
We used clecos (small "place holders" for rivets) to hold the peg boards in place until we knew they were completely against the interior ribs and that the peg boards were ready to be installed in their final position.
We clamped some hardboard in place to compare how it could be used as interior walls. At this juncture, we are looking at the hardboard for the endcaps and the peg board for the main side walls.
I hope it is as exciting for you as it is for us to see the Route 104 Science airstream's final form taking shape. Our goal is to finish installing the interior walls by early next week. Our next post should also include a sneak peak of the exterior accent paint color!
