47/52: Mo Bro’s & Mo Sistas

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.” Coco: Looks like a 70’s porn star Juju: Rather excited by her furry addition Mowgli: Crooked ‘mo   My beautiful friend, Emelia, brought some ‘mo love to our house last week. “It’s Mo-vember” she proclaimed to the kids, as she pulled out a…

A right-sized life

Our blog has inspired a blog piece. I initially blushed when I saw our family photos alongside those of our trailer renovation up on the HofArc website. For those of you who can’t be bothered scrolling through lots of old posts, Wally Hofmann has done a great job outlining our motivations in buying and renovating a…

The Barechested Architect

No one believes that I chose Matthew Hofmann, based entirely on his talent, for our Airstream project. When I initially showed a friend Hofmann’s Airstream portfolio, “giddyup”were the first words to escape her mouth as she caught a glimpse of the Architect. Immediately followed by: “Does he come with the trailer?” I assured her it…

Isn’t she pretty?

Our beautifully renovated Airstream is finally bound for Australia. After a few Thanksgiving-related delays, Wallabee has set sail on board the Kota Jaya. She is now surfing the waves of the North Pacific Ocean and will hopefully arrive in Melbourne in less than three weeks. Check out how she turned out – I’ll post more…

Loitering at the dock

Wallabee has begun her long journey to Australia. Our Airstream is now sitting pretty at the dock, waiting for the next ship to Melbourne.

And we were worried about where we’d put all our stuff? I think there are more than enough nooks and crannies by the looks of things. Our Airstream renovation is really moving along now, though with a shipping deadline in two weeks time there is still a lot to finish.

Side-mounted BBQ

What is it about men and barbecues? My better half was hyperventilating with excitement today when Matthew Hofmann from HofArc proposed installing this side-mounted barbecue onto our Airstream. I’ve said no to hanging his surfboard inside our Airstream, no to red tiles and no to spending $1000 on an integrated surround sound system. So who…

Designing a home away from home

With the twins now crawling, attempting to eat every power cord they can find and climbing up every rickety piece of furniture in the house, it’s impossible to find time to work on our Airstream renovation. There’s so much that could be done with the re-design if only Remi or I had the head space to think……

Gutted Wallabee

To all the Airstream purists, please shut your eyes… ‘Wallabee’ has been gutted and we are ready to renovate. We have 24′ feet of internal space to play with, which is less than 18 square metres to live in as a family of five. Because we’re planning to live in it full-time for a year…
