The Airstream Lodge

by ARC on July 31, 2014

the Airstream chassis is ready for refinishing

This Airstream is going to be transformed into a hunting lodge for one of our clients. Here you can see we’re right at the start of the project. The interior has been completely stripped out and Darren is cleaning the chassis – a very dusty job!

In the first photo you can see the chassis behind the wheel arches after it has been wire brushed to remove the rust – it is now ready for refinishing.

Tradewind bedroom suite

by ARC on July 23, 2014

One of the great things about an Airstream is that you can use it for anything – not just travelling but also as a static installation in your garden to be used as an office, spare room or a space for entertaining – and as it’s a temporary structure you don’ actually need planning permission to put it there. You may have been following our progress on the Airstream Safari that we’ve been converting into a luxury pool house for one lucky customer – that project is almost finished now and now we have another one beginning. This Airstream Tradewind is in a bit of a sorry state at the moment but over the coming weeks we are going to be converting it into a deluxe bedroom suite. So keep your eyes on the blog to see how it’s getting on!
