When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Ok, that's freaking cool. I wish I had time (and room) to do something like that! Maybe next year.

Be sure to report back, however, on how/if it affects the temps with the outer reflective layer covered up.

I'm just guessing that it won't effect it much, don't forget this board is designed to be covered up with wood or brick when used in construction. Though I wouldn't recommend painting it black.

Thanks for your comments! It's been a lot a fun and a labor of love. Swing on over to the Pyronaughts 4:30 & A and have a look! We chose to paint in lighter colors in consideration of the temp. I'm bringing an air conditioner too.

You'll be in heaven when you turn the A/C on.

That is so neat! Wow!

The hut that my father and I are making for sleeping is going to be made from foam board as well. You just inspired me to decorate the exterior as well as inside. I am thinking metallic finish paints of a few colors..........
It's pointless to walk when it's past time to run.
