I guess I could afford a house sooner than I think...

What do you think of this room? Lovely, right?

A perfect little example of cottage living?


Yes, that is what I said.

This is a double-wide trailer in Woodside, CA.
It is 60 feet by 24 feet in size. They fixed it up with a $40,000 budget, with paint, shutters, french doors, new flooring, appliances, and a deck. The paneling throughout was made to look like bead board with paint and 6 in. deep baseboards.

For the owners; this is the half in their 2 and a half homes, but I think I could do it as a primary residence for a few years, at least.

It just shows you what you can do with your imagination.

This is seriously impressive.

It's amazing what you can do with trailers these days. I think that, in my retirement, I might go super retro with one, just for fun.
