Our home (on wheels)

We are often asked “how do you do it? What do you live in?” So, we decided to create a page dedicated to our hardworking rig that keeps up with us across the country!

Our setup:

2012 Chevrolet 3500 pulling a 2011 Heartland Big Country 3494QBS

Our Master bedroom:

The bathroom: (we spared you the toilet!)

Our Livingroom: 

The kitchen:

The boys room after the remodel!

There used to be futon type bunks on the bottom and we tore them out for more floor space!

Now you have seen our HOME… that’s right… it isn’t an RV or travel trailer to us…

it is our home and we love it and the freedom it gives us! 

We love feedback! What would you like to see? What questions do you have for us? Leave a comment below!

We changed it up some more! Our home is always a work in progress! Here are some updated pictures of the boys room after our little trip to Ikea! 

Another Re-Model: 

Our kitchen table is wood and painted black. The kids are not gentle and we ended up with scratches and stains on the table and chairs. I went to Hobby Lobby and found some fabric and I also bought a giant sheet of thick vinyl. I covered the table and chairs first in the fabric and then with the clear vinyl over it! We love it! It is so much easier to clean and there are no stains on the chairs!

    What do you think of that sink? I am not sure I would like the raised type of sink. Love your idea of raising the bunks. When our boys were little, hubby made them each a top bunk ~ we had a desk & chair under each of them at one end and a dresser at the other end; they shared a room so it gave them more floor space for playing.

      I actually really love the sink. You end up with more counter space! My ONLY complaint is this particular sink has a frosted outside… the problem with that is when water rolls down the sides it leaves streaks and that drives me NUTS! So we are looking into a clear or brown glass sink.

      The boys LOVE their room… they can build quiet the train setup in there!

    I love your whole setup! Those fridges with the wooden doors, the entertainment area, and the leather couch! Will be looking forward to your posts.

    It is lovely, Jen. I’d love to come check it out in person if you have time to hang before you leave Hill! Besides, I’d just love some more time to chill together since who knows when that time will come again in the future.

    Just did an update to the space under the bunks last night! Hopefully Jennifer posts it soon!

    Also it should be noted that the couch has two recliners built into them, and it did not come with the RV. Also, the dining table was turned 180 degrees and pushed against the wall to provide more of a “desk” setup.

    Great idea using Ikea storage in the bottom space as well as opening up the space for the kids to play. We should link up our pages! Liz

    Did you build your ladders or buy them? If you built them, are there hooks on them to attach to beds? Thanks
