Stage one of the Caravan conversion is complete. It is now almost invisible from a distance. A few well positioned Leylandii, and the disappearance will be complete.
I chose a satin finish Charcoal Grey rather than Dark Green, and it looks OK.
On the front there were two missing windows which I've now replaced in a rather simplistic way. Next thing will be to attack the inside.
They'll need a couple of beds, a table, and some chairs. After that they can do what they like.
I may even lay some carpet. I want it to be simple, but 'reasonably' smart; so they can take some pride in it.
Oh what fun !ReplyDelete
It will be!Delete
Why didn't we hire you to remodel our tiny camper last summer before we spent 6 LONG months in it? All I did was white wash the interior. Can't wait to see the inside when you're done.ReplyDelete
I've got to strip it first. I'm taking out the old sink, cooker, fridge, etc. It'll be very simple inside.Delete
They will have such fun.ReplyDelete
I do hope so.Delete
I think you're having some fun too! Love the skull and crossbones.ReplyDelete
Of course, if it was only for them I probably wouldn't bother.Delete
Lucky, lucky boys! What magical childhood memories they will have.ReplyDelete
I shall build a fire-pit too; how many boys don't enjoy playing with fire!Delete
Tidy job. Not sure about the carpet though.ReplyDelete
It's just an old piece that has a mud-hiding pattern.Delete
I can hear their whoops and yells right now when they see this. The scull and cross bones is a perfect last touch. You'll need to know a password to get in there!ReplyDelete
Password 'Shivver me timbers'.Delete
Lovely - I think you need to embrace the inner camper that you never knew existed by testing it before the boys visit! xReplyDelete
I'm thinking it would have made a good small studio.Delete
It looks fantastic. If I'm ever a granny and have the resources, I shall remember this and use it as inspiration. xReplyDelete
All kids need a den, and this just the job! I've just spoken to them in England and they're very excited.Delete
Fantastic. I could easily spend the rest of my days in it.ReplyDelete
Wot? As trailer trash?Delete
I'll come down for a dirty weekendDelete
Not in front of the children.Delete
'round the back.Delete
That'll do me. Are you sure about planting leylandii - think twice :)ReplyDelete
I've already bought them, they'll be a good ten feet back from the van.Delete
Could enter it in Shed of the Year :-)ReplyDelete
Would it qualify? Old Wreck Caravan of the Year perhaps!Delete
Now that looks the perfect den for those who want to chill out, or get away from the adults!ReplyDelete
It'll probably be used for secret iPad usage.Delete
You really are the world's best Grandpa.ReplyDelete
No, I just like my grandsons!Delete
Your grandchildren are very, very lucky!ReplyDelete
It's grand that you are just making minimal improvements to the den, allowing the children to customize it as they wish.
I expect they'll decorate in their own particular way!Delete
We'll see. It isn't finished yet!Delete
A splendid choice of colour.ReplyDelete
Brilliant idea, looks great!ReplyDelete
