I actually thought I would build a tiny studio, much like the adorable littles houses you see in the tiny home movement, only outfitted as a jewelry studio rather than a little abode. I thought I'd my little studio from scratch, using a trailer as foundation and building from the floor up. This turned out to be more challenging when considering the zoning laws in my hometown. I realized there was a very real possibility of my tiny studio being unwelcome in my neighborhood, and what a shame to put so much time, money, and energy into a project that could get the boot by the city of Boise!
So I kept dreaming....
Last summer, I renovated a 1986 Nomad camper into an adorable glamper for myself and kids to take comfortable weekend getaways. It went from a dark brown musty interior space to an inviting and welcoming little home away from home ready to take to the road at our whim.
I got to thinking....what about renovating a camper into a studio?
Then I remembered how much I LOVE Airstreams. Who doesn't love Airstreams??
And then I found a 1956 Airstream Safari on Craigslist for less than $4000. I bought it that very day and brought her home.
My dream is to create a self sustained studio run off solar power using mostly found and reclaimed materials. This project is so inspiring and I look forward to sharing all of the renovation adventures with you here and I hope you feel inspired with me!
Be Real. Adorn Yourself. Just Be.
