Closer to Hatch Chile

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.Airstream foam insulation

Had to use masonite board so the walls would curve with the Airstream.

The propane hookup was a success! Stove and furnace work great.

So after six months work you're probably asking, what's it look like? Without further delay, please see the final airstream:
