Trailer Transformation: Part 1

Here’s another of my old posts about our trailer transformation (gosh, I miss that old thing!)

November 2, 2013

We started painting the trailer. So far, we have a coat of primer on most surfaces (even some of those surfaces that did not need paint on them!). It’s interesting painting with a 12 month old hanging around and an almost-eight-year-old helping. Let’s just say that we found out that latex primer does not come out of baby hair very easily. We have another bucket of primer sitting in the house and we’ve chosen colors and bought wood to make the bed frames. And this coming week we should actually have some time to work on these projects. We had a meeting with my parents to hash out some of the logistics in moving to the property: where my handicapped brother who currently lives with us will live while we are in the trailer, if we can use their shower and get water from them, etc, etc, etc.) We also figured out that we are going to put the house we are currently living in on the market this spring. So not only do we need to get our new home ready to live in, but we have to clean, finish projects, and downsize in our current home. Whew! Gonna be a crazy winter!

Our beautiful girls

She really got the hang of it.
Bye, bye ugly 80’s wallpaper!
Loving that my painting overalls are being put to good use again!
Hubby wanted the inside of the cabinets nice and bright!
It’s inevitable that paint gets everywhere
In process and already looking better!

About Maridy

Hi, I'm Maridy. I have many interests in life. Right now, my husband and I and our two girls (ages 14 and 7), along with a couple of dogs currently live in a 33ft trailer while we build our house on our homestead property in Northern Nevada (Castle Rock Homestead). Follow us on that journey to building our high desert homestead from the ground up! I also have a passion for hiking and have a blog for that, too. (Journey in the Wilderness) Join me there as I explore the beautiful outdoor landscapes of Northwestern Nevada and Eastern California. And finally, I love historical costuming. Though I haven't been able to do much of that in recent years, I'm hoping that "once the house is built" I'll be able to get back into it more. See what all we've done with that on my Yesteryear Productions blog.

Whaddya think?
