Ra and I have been the busiest beavers in the whole dammed river. So we were in Washington DC for Crafty Bastards about a week ago. Figs made bank and had we an awesome time which is besides the point, but Rhonda had a great idea. Here’s how the conversation went:
“Let’s sell our house and live in an Airstream trailer for a while. We can pay off all of our debt, and it will be fun!”
“Alright!” <–that’s me.
When we got home we found the trailer you see above and bought it for $1,200. We’re going to completely gut it and rebuild it into a cute little place to live! I’m terribly excited about this project.
So my buddy Lee and I ripped out the fridge and the heater while our respective wives looked on. It was fun, but now there’s a pile of garbage on our land. I would be more concerned about appearances if our neighbor hadn’t left a toilet half buried on our land before selling it to us…oh and one time he lit a futon on fire on our property while we were gone. That makes it sound bad, but he’s really a nice guy.
There are magnets on the ceiling of the camper that hold the cabinets open! I love that! Too bad most of those cabinets will have to go away. I’ll post more as we fix it up!
Oh and Ra posted more pics on the Figs & Ginger blog. Check it out!
