Hello! My name is Mariah. I am a student of sustainable design and architecture. I also restore vintage campers! (The COMET is of course the natural culmination of these passions). I am an avid Tiny House advocate and participant (for more on the tiny house movement, look here: http://tinyhouseblog.com/ and here: http://www.tinyhousetalk.com/ ). I’ve always been able to see the potential in old camper trailers. When I was in high school, I thought I would just buy one, decorate it, and live in it. Then I found out about the Tiny House Movement and I felt like I fit right in. Sustainable design became an essential part of my life. I realized how many old trailers there are that either get junked or just left out in the cold, perfectly usable structures made with valuable materials. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to breathe a new, eco-friendly life into something used. I really hope The COMET can become a model for other people looking to live more sustainably and more healthy on a budget. I’ve got DIY attitude to boot so The COMET will be created as cheaply and as efficiently as possible. I really believe that living in a tiny space using only renewable resources is not a sacrifice, but a step towards freedom and happiness.
Let’s get to it!
