I’m back all project ventura followers! If you have yet to be enraptured by our great, and everything fabulous 1977 Airstream trailer makeover project, then hopefully our inspiration boards will capture your attention!

D-Plus Two Weeks (Annalise Irby)

Our DAP presentation went very smoothly, pretty much what I had expected after our practices. I think we left a very good impression overall of hard work, creativity, and expertise.

It’s OVER! DAP Reflection by Karrie Newton

No one broke an iPad… the […]

Designing for small spaces means putting a huge amount of thought into how they look and feel when you’re inside them. The inside space in a Tiny House is hugely affected by seemingly small interior decorating decisions, like the use of partitions, textures and sidings, and the biggest one: lighting. Just like Trendy Trailer’s best brainstorming sessions […]

Green Trailer Budgeting (Karrie Newton)

My duty currently is organizing our budget spreadsheet and putting together all of our green materials. This is more challenging than it might sound. The budget is a bit of an issue when it comes to finding the exact price for something we require. For example, we are looking at a certain type of insulation […]
