1972 Airstream – looks like fun or trouble?

Hmm. Kevin can’t stop thinking about this one, and he’s scheming with some pals. Independently, just this morning I was plunking around on some small house websites after seeing the chinese kid living in the egg on the sidewalk – http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/7598496-egghouse-anyone and http://www.weehouse.com/. We’re big fans of Rocio Romero and went down to tour her place once – www.rocioromero.com

Kevin is always talking about building houses out of containers and there are plenty out there doing just that, I’ve seen some great photos.  Airstream already designed a terrific small living space – you gotta love it. I remember going with Kev to look at one in St. Louis.  He wanted to put it inside our studio – the old monument company – it was going to be the coolest live/work space ever. It was a snowy day, and we drove way out into the suburbs, and the thing was cool, but it had a dank smell and I just felt turned off. We ended up just putting our bed in the corner of the warehouse and bought an old nurse’s station for a kitchen. Here it is with Kevin sitting on some fancy motorcycle that he just thought was the best – drive your motorcycle right up to your bed and go to sleep – you can see the bed in the back corner. WhatEVER. Thinking back, it was pretty fun living in there.

But back to the Airstream – I could vote either way on this one. How about you?

  1. The motorcycle musta been PFL inside the old monument factory.

    Airstream? Yes. Park it down by the water at the wharf (it’s still a public right-of-way)… waterfront for just pennies per day!

  2. Nuther idea: I’ll be you a barge for that Airstream…

  3. You know, a person could have an airstream and a barge and THAT could be the live/work….eh?? Especially if you could put the airstream ON the barge and take it off too….. that might just beat any other live/work that Kevin has already configured….ULTIMATE live/work! You’re so cool.

  4. BUy the airstream, extremely cool! PS – as much as I love Johnny, it’s cooler than him. I’m with Kevin on this one.
