If you haven't realized it yet, FishSki Provisions is inspired by the incredible flavors from the New Mexico culture. So setting up a secondary home in our "favorite state" gives us direct access to inspiration and the Hatch Chile gold we love so much.
In May we purchased a vintage Airstream, beautiful, big and empty. That's right, we bought it gutted. We then spent the next six months turning the tin shell into a small home to park on our 42 acres in Taos, NM.
Here is our journey. We did it all, everything from insulation, to electric, to the wallpaper touches. We share this with you, our FishSki fans, to show our driving love for making life the adventure you want it to be. Don't worry we ate delicious food along the way, and never ceased our progress on FishSki during construction.
Foam insulation was harder than expected due to temperature issues.
Had to use masonite board so the walls would curve with the Airstream.
Walls are up and sealed.
We added heated flooring for a glampy touch!
Cabinets from Ikea in the green foam color.
Wallpaper for main space is applied with ease thanks to vinyl sticky back.
The propane hookup was a success! Stove and furnace work great.
Driving it down ended up a breeze and a blast thanks to our friends Chad and Brittany.
So after six months work you're probably asking, what's it look like? Without further delay, please see the final airstream:
Thank you to all of our wonderful friends who helped get this incredible project done. You all rock. Now get ready for more Hatch inspiration from land of green chiles!
