Job loss is helping reinforce a nagging desire to live off the grid. I'm trying to figure out just how I want to convert my E250 Cargo Van for that purpose. I wondered whether styrofoam peanuts would make good insulation for the space between the skeleton and the outer skin. I went in search of peanuts and found discarded three huge bags of cotton that had been used as snow around a mall Christmas tree. Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. The question I have for this forum - my first question for the forum, in fact, since I have just registered moments ago, thank you and hello - is this: 1) how well does cotton perform as insulation?, and 2) do styrofoam peanuts work better?
