As I get ready to dive into remodeling this trailer into a comfortable tiny house for our family, I thought I would share the before photos taken from the for sale listing. While the trailer is in great condition and certainly could be lived in as-is, we assume we will be living in it for close to a year, so I want to make it as much our style as possible. I plan to really lightened it up, and get more “real” furniture in here to replace the built-in furniture. Plus, those curtain valances HAVE GOT TO GO. They’re so boxy and block so much light, and darken up the space so much. I can’t wait to change this all up!
Here is the floor plan for a better idea of the layout. Click through to see all the before photos!
This is the view as you walk in the front door, pretty self explanatory. There is a bedroom behind this, and the bunkhouse is at the back, behind those pantry doors.
The kitchen, with the bathroom to the right. There is a lot of clever storage, but we will definitely need to rethink how we cook!
The main living space, which is actually spacious for an RV! The tv is really cheesy and funny to me, it spins around so you can see it in the master bedroom and has a mirror on the other side. It has a little bit of a “bachelor pad in the 90s” feel to it. Ha!
This is the “master bedroom.” It’s a slightly smaller than normal queen bed with about 1ft of walking space around it. The storage you see is IT. No closet, drawers, nothing but a cubby under the mattress! Josh has always wanted our bedroom to be a cozy room with nothing in it but a bed, so he’s excited. We’ll see how it goes 🙂
The bunkhouse currently has two sets of bunk beds and will be turned into the kids’ room. The bottom bed on one side turns into a table with benches, but that will be taken out to make a space for toys and a small play space. I’m not certain if I’ll leave the existing armoire or replace it with the dressers we own now.
I’m putting together a lot of ideas for tiny spaces and drafting up a budget and game plan. Hopefully this will take me about a month to renovate, but maybe that’s too optimistic? All I know is I can’t wait to get rid of the dark furniture and trim!
