From outdated trailer to trendy tiny home

The two New Englanders Heather and Dana met in college and fell in love. A few months after graduation, they spent a month road tripping, and realized that all they needed fit into a single station wagon. So they decided to try out the tiny life. They went on the hunt for a camper they could convert into a tiny home.

On Craigslist, we found a trailer that stood out; a 2010 23 foot trailer. We took a look at it, and realized the potential it had. Later that day, the owner towed it to our apartment!”

It was livable for a weekend, and thankfully all of the appliances were in good shape. But we wanted more. We started out doing a couple small projects, and kept realizing new potential for this little place and ended up nearly redoing it all.”
