Today Ken, Karen and I met to discuss the design and work we'll be doing on the trailer. I shared my sketches with them through email, but we still needed to meet and make adjustments to my vision so it meshes with the reality of working with a vintage trailer.
Thankfully, our meeting was super successful, and I am beyond excited! Ken and Karen of Vintage Trailers are swamped with work right now, but our goal is to have the total renovation done by August 1st.
A few things we plan on doing are removing the seating area (pictured above) and just making boxes to cover the wheel wells. We'll be removing the closet and upper cabinets so the length of the counter top will change from 61" and go the width of the trailer which is about 80". We'll also remove the upper cabinets on the side walls.
The back and the front walls are going to have salvaged barn wood installed horizontally. The two side walls and the ceiling are going to be painted white. Below is a pic of the the wood I found for the front wall above the counter. This distressed wood will be located from the counter height up to the base of where the upper cabinets are currently. We'll be adding a shelf at the point where the ceiling curves into the wall behind the cabinet doors. I love the blue grey distressed wood!
