Can a Marriage Survive. . .

Posted by Tanille

. . . 2 remodels in 2 years?  Well, time will tell.  I’ll let you in on a little secret we have been working on.  But first why?

In February James’ mom passed away leaving his dad alone living on 5 acres about an hour away from us.  We immediately thought “he needs to move in the park with us”, but it was too much change for him.  In April he had a massive stroke and things changed.  After a couple of sketchy weeks when we thought he wouldn’t make it, his stubbornness pulled him through.  Now he is in rehabilitation learning to walk again, talk again, and soon eat again.  And we found him a trailer.  Once again, this trailer was free.  How do we keep finding them???  That will be another post.  But for now, check out the before pics. . .

We aren’t sure what tool was used to paint, but it wasn’t a paintbrush.  Creative nonetheless.

Another creative use of color

And the master suite.  Sorry for the poor quality picture, but you get the idea.  It’s possible that this was done with a yellow highlighter.  Also our favorite feature, the 3 blade ceiling fan.  I’m not sure what happened to the other 2 blades….  Either a little person lived here, or someone was decapitated.

So remember these pictures because they are a thing of the past.  We started thinking that this would be mainly cosmetic – my idea.  But he disagreed.  It’s going down to the studs.  And here we go again.

Somehow I ended up in a single-wide trailer, in Reno, Nevada. And somehow I love it. Here is where I tell my story about my trailer, and my passion for small space living, photography, travelling, and running.

    • Hi Stacy. I’m still looking for the energy Ha. But overall it will be the least expensive option and the best way that we can take care of his father right now, so it’s worth it. It’s ready for drywall so in the next few weeks we should have some great pics.

      • Well, again, I am amazed at the renovations you two have done! And I love that you are soon going to have a whole community of people living in your park because you’re making it cool! Good luck, and take time for wine….I’ll keep looking for the pics!
