Soooooo if we're FB friends, you probably already saw that I've started working on renovating my horse trailer tack room into a weekender. I'd like to show more, but hotels are $$$$ and the closest show venue is juuuuuust far enough that driving back and forth blows. I'm also casually shopping actual LQ horse trailers and if I find one I want in my budget, that isn't out of the question either (🤣) but in the meantime, this gives me something to do and if I like the results, I won't buy something new! Anyway. Here's the progress to date:
|I have literally always hated this carpeting.
|Came out SO EASILY
|Then I had so much glue to scrape off.
|Saving ideas from the Horse Trailer Conversion group.
|Pulled out the floor carpet!
|More ideas from the group. I asked DH if one of the prisons could do custom butcher block countertops for me 🤩
|Replacing the windows - shout out to 4-Star for having THE BEST customer service. Had these windows 4 days after I emailed asking about how to order replacements for my '99 trailer I bought used.
|Not a true project until somebody bleeds lol.
|Using the carpet we pulled out as a template to cut insulation.
|Traced the cut insulation onto plywood to try to avoid a lot of obnoxious measurements
|Plywood over the insulated floor
|More #inspo I saved
|LVP floor down!
Yes, I still have flooring left over from the house that I used in the Taj MahTeal and now this 🤣🤣
|Electric plugin installed
Not gonna lie, the thought of drilling a hole in my beautiful trailer gave me hives so I'm glad DH did it while I was gonna trail riding 🤣
|Inside. Electric box coming soon!
|Made a lot of progress this weekend before we ran out of insulation - I need to go get more supplies!
I also spent an uncomfortable amount of money buying the heat & a/c unit, a mini fridge (in blue naturally 🤣), and a mattress, so hopefully if we keep progressing at this rate maybe DH and I can sneak away for an overnight at the trail riding ranch before it gets too cold!
