Our Airstream was a labor of love and a full renovation that took two years to finish. It is a 1972 31 footer. We dreamed of having a vintage Airstream for a few years and finally pulled the trigger on one. My husband did all the work. The shell was taken off the frame so framework/welding could be done. For now we are parked adjacent to the shop my husband is working in on another Airstream project.

It is a total of four humans and one fur baby living in our home. My husband Zach, myself (Colleen), our oldest son Ezra, our youngest son Harvey, and our first baby Luna (5-year-old Australian Shepherd). The boys love to help on all our projects; it can get frustrating, but it’s fun to watch them get involved.

What is your favorite room and why? Our living room space because it functions as so many rooms and extra storage. It’s where we eat, our kids playroom, and our hang-out space.

If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? I would add a washer/dryer combo or a dishwasher!

Any advice for creating a home you love? Create something that brings you joy. Get inspiration, but don’t copy others’ ideas. Let your creativity go wild, trust your instinct. Don’t be afraid to mix styles if you love pieces from each. That may be your style. If so, make it happen! You will love your home each day.

Thanks, Colleen!
