The Farm House, Spring 2017

The Farm House

This house started out as a 1953 Redman New Moon Trailer.  And I'm learning that it was a pretty nice trailer to have back in the 50's.


As seen in the Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz movie, The Long Long Trailer. 

So, this farm house started out as that trailer, and slowly over the years, rooms were added on.  Until the final product was achieved.

From the outside, you would have no idea. I was completely blown away the first time I set foot inside.    

  • There are several things I should point out, in order to get your bearings for when we get inside.  There are 2 front doors: The first is under the porch behind the out-of-control bush, and the other is next to the garage door.
  • There is a video return slot next to the second front door.
Here is a rough sketch of the floor plan so you can (hopefully) follow along. It's not to scale, but it's a fair representation of the flow.  The red rounded-circles are the exterior doors/garage doors.

We'll Start our interior tour from the second front door, that you now know leads to the converted garage. And please excuse the picture quality, I did not anticipate blogging this!

The Converted Garage

Walking in, looking straight ahead.  The Video Rental Room is the room with the
Red carpet.  The converted porch is the door on the far left.

Same position, just turned to the left.  The windows are the original trailer windows
and are part of the current kitchen. You see the door to the converted porch to the right.

Same position, just turned to the left.  Looking towards the 3-car garage.
Isn't that fake fireplace awesome?!

The Kitchen

Standing in the family room, looking into the kitchen where their table sat.

Looking back towards the family room.

In the kitchen, looking towards the back of the trailer,
where they converted a bedroom into a large bathroom.

The Big Bathroom

So this big bathroom took us by surprise.  This room used to be their main bedroom. Were not exactly sure when it was converted to a bathroom, but it wasn't too long ago. This hallway that were looking at used to be their bathroom.  The countertop you see straight ahead was the sink.  The shower and toilet were in the doors that are now just a clothing closet.

Walking down the hall, away from the kitchen.

This used to be a bedroom.

Turned around, looking back toward the kitchen.
Front Bedroom

From the picture above, if you turn right, you step down into another bedroom.

The door in the center leads to the outside.  The door to the right leads to the big bathroom.

I didn't get any other pictures of this room, cause I wasn't really planning on blogging this, but this does lead to the front living room (pictured below) and Aaron is standing in the doorway to the front bedroom.  So you can see it isn't very large.

Front Living Room
This picture is taken from the doorway of the front bedroom looking in to the Front Living Room. The doorway on the left leads back into the kitchen.  This house is a maze.

Bedroom #2

And now, if we go back into the kitchen and follow on back to the family room, the second bedroom is off of that room.

In the family room, by the window, looking down a short hallway to the second bedroom.

The Garage

And finally, we go out to the garage. 

And that's it!  Its a very interesting house, to say the least.
