Name: April Gilleland, husband, our identical twin 4-year-old girls, and our 5-month-old puppy
Location: Sacramento, California
Type of home: 5th wheel
Size: 320 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, owned

Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I am April and I live full-time in my renovated 5th wheel with Jason and our identical twin girls Adalyn and Brooklyn who are 4-years-old. We got a puppy five months ago and his name is Jackson. I work from home and homeschool my girls for preschool. I am a realtor and would love to eventually buy our forever home, but until then, we are loving the tiny life.

Describe your home’s style in five words or less: Cozy, homey, oasis, family

What is your favorite room and why? Living/playroom/kitchen/office. It’s all one big room and I love being able to do so many things in one room and together.

If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? I would love to silence my air conditioner.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I bought a small sign that says “you are my favorite person” and I got it at Marshalls.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Write down the top three must-haves in your home and create them. For us, it was a playroom for the kids, mudroom for our things, and a big lounge area for movie nights with the fam.
