Inspiring Individuality

NEW!!!

  Nancy's fabulous horsedrawn caravan!

  

 The decoration is Value Village and personal nostalgia, and the effect is stunning!  She says it's finished, but.....

Current Projects:

**1**

The first project this year is complete: a fully-insulated chicken coop,  on a simple 4'x5' trailer.  `The girls` are happy in their new homes and laying delicious country eggs in the spacious boxes.

Next, my cedar reading room caravan.  Many thanks to Skip Izon, of Shadow River Boatworks, for cutting the boards for the cedar strip ceiling. 

The writing desk in front of the bay window will convert to a bed.

The third project is a steam punk caravan, still in the design stage.  I've got a GREAT local scrap yard to forage in!  I haven't decided which trailer to build on: a sweet little 4'x7' or a larger 6'x10'.  Found two great carriage lamps for it at a yard sale!

I'm back to working with stained glass, so custom windows are now a possibility.

         

 

Whether you build your caravan yourself or I help you, my goal is to foster your creativity and bring your dream to life.
