f/3.5, perfect for keeping the feet on the ground! Should be fairly light too at that thickness.

Quick Update: I bought a staple gun so that I could put up the trim pieces. This shot also shows the front "Skylight" feature that lets in some light, so I didn't insulate it. However you can also see the nice and shiny new insulation and the fully functional dome light. (The fixture had a switch on it which turned out to be bad. The wall switch is good, though.)

Edit, you can also see that I put some padding on the door frame. Can't tell you how many times I've hit my head on that frame, over the years. Now that I'll be using this for camping, I'll be going in and out more, hence the padding.

The floor opened up and the pier dropped down to the ground.
