I love my tiny house.

Okay, okay, so I know I’m still trying to catch up the blog with the progress in a chronological and step-by-step fashion – but I can’t help it. I love my little house (even though it’s unfinished) and I want to share what it looks like with you all at this point! So let’s look into the future-present at the most recent photos of the COMET. Give me your feedback in the comments! We’ll get back to the progress updates later – unfortunately this did not all happen overnight πŸ™‚

I'm in love with this little custom hand-made soap holder that Matt made for my kitchen. It keeps the soap off of the valuable counter space and also covers up some irreparable damage on the original back splash so that I could re-use it!

If my cat were in the camper that's the sunny spot she would be sleeping on!

The couch in the back is also my bed – it folds down/pulls out to be quite comfortable (awesome fabric from Sew Fine Fabrics on Etsy). You can see the Marmoleum click flooring that I used (courtesy of GreenBuildingSupply.com) and the turquoise Marmoleum sheet good countertops (which everyone mistakes for being original – which means I picked the right color!). At first I thought all the colors were a little much, but I like them now. It fits my style. I’m happy with my little fold-down desk area in the back, made out of salvaged 1950’s cracked ice Formica. We used scrap Marmoleum from the countertops to make the bathroom floor, and some panels of cork flooring from the ReStore for the kick-plates in there. The rounded piece of the counter folds up and down too, which has come in handy!

Oh, and I just updated the PHOTOS page too, with these pictures. I updated a few other pages too – check out the new “SUSTAINABILITY” page under the “ABOUT THE PROJECT” header.

Well, it’s not finished, but it’s quite homey, and I love it. I had to share. Thanks for reading!!

    Ok, so I’m your biggest fan now! πŸ˜€
    The Comet Camper is the most adorable thing ever! Each picture was killing me with cuteness!!! I could have sworn your floor and counter tops, etc., were original things from the ’50’s! Great job creating the perfect look. The thick candy strip curtains and seating are the best. It makes it look all caravan-ee πŸ˜€
    I’m going to view the other pics you mentioned. ❀

    • Thanks so much for the compliments! I really wanted to stick with the retro feeling of the original trailer, and I’m glad you like it! It is really nice to live in such a colorful, happy environment – you can’t help but be happy when you’re in it!

    So ridiculously charming! Hello, jealousy.

    Where did you get the li’l basket over your sink? That’s a great idea. I’ve gotten some good inspiration for my (currently rather dumpy) new Fleetwing from your wonderful photos!

    • Hi Sharon! Thanks for reading. I got the rail and the basket at Ikea, I think it was like $2. There’s another small dish-rack basket that fits with the system too, which I can use when I need to. It’s nifty for keeping things off the counter, since there isn’t much counter space.

    It’s adorable, and so cozy looking. All the materials you chose look great, and the colors are so cheerful.

  5. The Comet is adorable. I can truly appreciate all of the hard work you’ve done to make her useable again. Very cute! Congrats…
