It began with a question...
What if we sold everything, bought a bus, and traveled?
She answered with one word. YES. And while we never did buy that bus, we did buy an Airstream...and began our love affair with these iconic vintage trailers. In three years, we've owned four Airstreams, traveled around North America, and renovated five aluminum dwellings. We are now renovating caravans for clients, traveling to and living on site with our renovation work.
We're wives, mamas, artists, and traveling souls.
We've been best friends for a decade, and after much life lived apart, we found one another again and fell in love. In that very first conversation, we both confessed our wanderlust, longing for travel, and desire to live tiny. When we later traveled together for the better part of a year, our time on the road just solidified what we already knew in our hearts: we were both meant for each other, and meant for a life outside the norm. A life of adventure, beauty, purpose, simplicity.
Changing the game.
The times have changed, and first-time trailer renovators today have a wealth of information at their fingertips. Yet years ago, clueless, we stood with tools in hand, looking at this hunk of mouse-infested aluminum. We were going to turn this into a home? When most folks were still restoring, we gutted and transformed. A clean and modern space, with nods to the era, emerged.
Now we're on our third Airstream home: we use the tiny spaces we live in to teach us. We build again and again to learn. We don't claim to be the best, but we're always willing to learn. We are passionate about the work we do. We put ourselves in the thick of it by building our own homes and inhabiting them. We learn from our mistakes and are forever evolving into better designers and builders through this real life approach.
Practicing what we preach.
We do this work because years ago, we wanted to radically change our lives. We bought an Airstream to serve as a constant while our surroundings ever-changed. We live with what we need and nothing more. We leave things better than we found them: bringing forgotten relics current in both form and function. Tiny living, creative solutions, and travel can transform us in beautiful ways. This is more than just a pretty space - it's a lesson in life.
