Officially Winter

Posted by Rebecca

Happy Winter!!

The days are still reaching 70 degrees, but the nights are plunging to the 30’s.  And this aluminium tube I call home is not insulated well.  A couple of mornings this week I woke up to a temperature of 49F inside.  Brrrrrrr!

So today is winterizing day.  I have friends coming over to help insulate the skirting of my trailer.  This will probably be a pretty tricky job as part of the skirting is under the deck.  But we will do our best.  Besides the skirting we will be repairing the roof (this needs to get done once or twice a year with a bucket of roof sealant), attempt to close a little vent window that got stuck open this summer, cover the swamp cooler, seal a large window that hides behind my bookshelf, and change the filter in the furnace.

It’s going to be a busy day, but if I don’t have to wake up and see my breath while laying in bed this winter it will all be worth it.

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.
