Aside from the kids, this little greying hunk of bliss is my pride & joy.

In late 2009, after an 18 month ponder, I finally sourced an all original twin axle 27′ Airstream from somewhere near Michigan (original owner lived here) via a helpful chap called Sam (the Glam). A year or so later, we were stripping her down and putting her back together again over the course of about 10 months. I kept a blog of the refurb here. No I wouldn’t do it again, it cost too much. But the finished van is our idea of holiday heaven and just a beautiful thing – even in its grey, original exterior state. In fact if we ever polish it up properly, I’d never be able to take my eyes of her.
We’re planning to park up for the summer season at our good friends’ amazing place in Cornwall – check out Halzephron House… Google map …street view (more or less where she’ll be sitting in the old herb garden). The location and view from there is tremendous.
Last weekend in chilly Kernow, we met a local chap (Ed the Shed) armed with larch aplenty, to do us a deck and shed.Below is my SketchUp plan for the site. If we can get it all set up by the end of April, we’ll be letting it this summer.
