I'd seen a few restored into office spaces online, and thought it was the most clever adorable idea I'd ever seen. And that retro vintage style and shape of those things could not be more up my alley. I LOVE them. I feel like every time I even start a project, my google inspiration search includes the words "vintage, fifties, or retro." So what better place to get my design on than a vintage 70's retro trailer?!?
So, Jonathan & I started researching, and let me tell you, these things are hard to find. People don't want to get rid of them! Especially the 50's models. They're much more rare than the 70's models. One night, we looked for hours online for the perfect one. Some of them were $10-15,000, and they looked terrible on the inside! Some were fairly priced, but seemed like too much of a project for us to handle. So the next morning, we get on Craigslist and SURPRISE! new Airstream trailer listed in Franklin! We called immediately, and the guy said it sold within 20 minutes after he had posted it... Bum city 2010! Anyway, all that to say, we kept searching and finally found, not one within our budget but TWO! For the price we were prepared to spend for ONE! We're both so excited about this project, that I think it might be a new venture of ours to buy and restore and resell. If we don't get too attached:)
We go to pick my new office up on Tuesday! And we're going to leave one at Jonathan's brothers' house, and he's going to start cleaning that one up and getting an idea of what we'll need to do to start that restoration. So, stay tuned for before and after photos! Until then, take a look at te exterior of my new office!
