Step 5: build bed and storage benches

Finally, I've started my Steampunk caravan!  I'm making it for myself, 'just because,' but if it interests you, get in touch!

Painted Cedar 11' Ledge Wagon

The floor is on, and the sides started

13' Straight sided Caravan

I've got a great workspace this fall!  Big, open drive shed - EVERYTHING fits in the one space.

      

 

 

RECENTLY COMPLETED CARAVANS

Here's the latest!  This is as much as I am doing on this caravan.  The owners want to do all the finishing work and painting!  The herring bone pattern took longer to do, but looks terrific!

  

Every window has a touch of stained glass

         

 

This next one is at the Sterling Renaissance Festival.

 Small plywood version of the cedar reading room but less than half the price

      

     

 

 9' Ledge Wagon  for Pennsic 2016

     

The tongue and groove pine siding was cut for us locally.  The doors were made in the same shop.

   

         

 

8' Ledge  with built-in crib for NERO Canada

  

        

 

 11' x 6' straight sided full time living space

     

heading out to get insulated before we build the interior

 

2016 Events

  

Welbeck Sawmill Wood Expo, Aug 5-6, 2016

  

Older Projects:

  a fully-insulated chicken coop,  on a simple 4'x5' trailer.  `The girls` are happy in their new home and laying delicious country eggs in the spacious boxes.

      

After the first, I  suddenly found myself building a second chicken coop, in a hurry, to be ready for the Georgian Homesteading and Survival Show.  Building in modular pieces with plywood is certainly faster!

         

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 converts to a bed. 

  

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

Here's a FABULOUS look!!!  Nancy's horse drawn caravan!

      

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

     

 

           

 

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

            Circus Wagon- winter

Gypsy Camp at NERO Canada

 

In March 2013 I drove to Wisconsin to visit Circus World Museum.

  Imagine being surrounded by these awesome circus wagons!
