Horse Trailer Conversion - Ceiling!

DH cussed me the whole weekend, but we did get most of the ceiling up! Of course, I'm three tiles short so we're waiting for those to come in - until they make it in, we can't start the paneling, blergh. But we also got some wiring in so the weekend wasn't a waste! 

I hung a chandelier in my tack shed, you knew I was gonna do some bougie bitch shit in here lol. 

So everyone in the horse trailer conversion group I follow said they put these up with staples - we started with that but kept shattering tiles 🫣 so, the first two look like garbage but I'm the only one who will see them. 

A combination of adhesive and a hand stapler seemed to do the trick, although we did put holes in a few more. Le sigh. But oh well. It doesn't have to be perfect, I'm the only who one who is gonna be sleeping in there anyway lol. 

I spent some time crashed out on the gooseneck floor looking out the windows 

Beautiful fall weekend. 

We also built a hay dolly lol. So I can move 800+ lb bales around alone. 

Lights installed. 

And a light switch! 


  1. Soooo... Will there be a chandelier in the trailer?
    Ceiling looks awesome!

  2. So I read this and was surprised and totally not surprised at the same time. It’s just so you.

  3. Amazing! I love it. The hay dolly is genius too.

    1. Normally we put up 600+ small square bales, but between my ankle and his back surgery, it just wasn't happening this year. Thankfully we found a good supplier for these big square bales (both grass and alfalfa) but it's been a bit of a learning curve to use them daily lol. I did big bales of alf last year but I feed so much less of that it was worth the hassle. But now that I'm feeding it out inside every day I needed an easier way to handle it! I can push one of these around by myself reasonably well with this dolly, thankfully!
