Good morning. I love exploring your site, such great inspiration! Thought i would sumbit a few pictures of the 79 airstream guest house that my husband and I created for our backyard in New Orleans.

A 1979 Airstream that serves as a backyard guest home in New Orleans, Louisiana. More info. Vintage Airstream Vacation Rental.

    I love it! But why would you need an outdoor shower in New Orleans? In case you jump over and swim in the river?

    I absolutely love this home and it is a true home. I would live there in a heartbeat.

    For me, there are few things sadder than an Airstream that has been made into a permanent installation. Airstreams are supposed to roam, that’s the entire point behind their existence.

    If you want a house, just built one.

      For me, there are few things sadder than a completely ridiculous statement like you dropped. Airstreams can be whatever you want to to be. In this case an absolutely wonderfully designed vacation rental.

      Unfortunately, many of these Internationals bite the dust and roam no more. That’s why you can buy the old ones needing restoration for very little money. To give something old a new life is wonderful. For it to be loved as much as this Airstream is obviously loved would make Wally proud.

      Airstreams are just things. I doubt it is feeling sngst due to its permanent condition. Beside that what is sadder than wasting resources for a new build rather than honoring was can be re-made? I think I just saw the Airstream wink.

      Isn’t that the whole idea with tiny living… that you design what you need? In this case, they repurposed a teavel trailer into an attractive home.

    My friend Matthew Holdren did all the woodwork…awesome craftsman. I’m planning on hiring him to help me with a tiny house build I’m designing.
