    It’s a dream, isn’t it?!? Pure beauty, all inclusive.

  • Amber says:

  • Bryan Piland says:

    Very nice place Happy for you both I Hope to be there myself someday soon Congratulations !! Bryan Phx, Az

  • Nerida says:

    Good for you. It looks fabulously well done. Mind you I have not seen an air stream that wasnt well done – something about air-stream owners. I especially love the quilt. I hope you have a very happy life together in your dream-stream.

  • Angela says:

    Awesome! I’m curious how you handled insulating when renovating. I’ve considered an Airstream re-do, but keep hearing about the inadequate insulation. Can this be fixed?

  • Bob says:

    I love the size of the kitchen and bathroom areas. Don’t know if that’s typical for Airstreams. Is that vinyl on the shelves?

    • Ellen says:

      We are in the process of renovating one, and have pulled out everything, down to the shell. We threw away the old insulation and will be installing new insulation and wiring.

  • Natalie says:

    I love all the retro touches, especially the record player, shabby chic drawers, and bathroom wallpaper!

  • Love love love this. Perfect wouldn’t change a thing. When can I move in?

  • Robin says:

    Absolutely fantastic! SO many wonderful things to comment upon, but 1st: I like that the two of you are “Dreamers That DO!!!”

    Bathroom is ab-fab. Curtains with Bacon & Eggs….so cute I want the same fabric! Exceptional lay-out, very user and body friendly. I can easily see two people and a pup living their day-to-day lives in this home.

    Thank you for sharing your pretty home with us. <3

    I also wanted to add (no EDIT button here) that I really appreciate your “re-purposing” an existing structure. For the life of me, I’ll never understand why someone would pour a fortune into a stick-built tiny house when they can spend 1/2 of that money to either retro-fit a trailer or if they have no skills, buy one from a talented person.

    If I were to go tiny, I’d mimic what you did and capitalize on the beauty and efficiency of trailer living vs. most of the silly waste of space I see in too many stick built tiny houses.

  • Denise says:

    I LOVE this one!!! I especially appreciate when someone has a real feel for interior design in small spaces…keep it funky and fun while repeating just a couple of vibrant primary colors throughout. Nothing wrong with wild patterns and creativity (in fact, that’s so much more interesting), but the repeat of just a couple of colors popping up unexpectedly ties the whole place together without either being visually assaulted by too many colors and patterns, or – even worse in my opinion – being bored by a lack of any daring choices that leaves the place too matchy-matchy, like a Pottery Barn photo spread. I would never comment negatively about someone’s tiny home based on a disagreement about their personal choices or taste (as many others do on this site), but I did feel compelled to gush over the funky eclectic yet tasteful combo here. Loads of vinyl, PLUS bacon & eggs? Love love love!!!!

  • Dawn says:

    Love it! I second Denise’s comments. What a lovely interior with some really unique touches. I love the coffee poster, but it’s all great! It makes me want to know you. šŸ™‚ Congratulations. Hope to follow in your footsteps someday.

    Love the white interior and the fact that the vintage wallpaper in the bathroom will enjoy a new “life” with the new owners. They are living the dream! Best of luck.
