The Airstream as a Tiny House and More

Tiny houses built on wheels are just one of the many options for a person considering a tiny house.

I recently stumbled across an article on my Airstream FB fan page about all the ways people are using the classic airstream. I encourage you to read the full article by Katharine Keane at Radical Revamps of a Classic here.

So be creative with your life and dreams and think outside of the box. What would you do with an old Airstream trailer?
