Every few weeks, Pj and I pack the kids up and take a short road trip to visit my parents at their home in the country. We love to go on nature walks or fish and swim in the river. Often times, my sister and her family come or other extended members of the family join us and it makes for a lot of fun...and a very full house!! My parent's country home is right next door to my grandparent's country home with a barn and pasture between the two. Although both houses have a lot of room for guests, we're all planning to fix up my grand parent's beautiful vintage Airstream as a mini guest house to sit between the properties.
Last Sunday, we had a little peek inside
This darling sofa folds out into a 2nd bed. There's also a bed towards the back of the Airstream, near the bathroom.
I love all of the original knobs and controls for the radio and kitchenette. It has a lot of work to be done on the inside, since the mice have gotten to it. The ladies will have a lot of long hours scrubbing and sewing and finding retro decor while the guys work on wiring and all of that mechanical stuff. When the hard work is over, we'll all have a really adorable camper to enjoy on the weekends and grandma even has a pair of original pink flamingos for the outside!
