This past Wednesday, Casey and I had the opportunity to join in on one of my favorite events, the annual Detour of Homes, organized by Norma at Max’s Haus. A “celebration of soulful spaces,” most of the homes are smaller, with a focus on creative organization and decorating with antique finds, or goods that people already own. We moved our bus to a public spot for the “tour” and shared the spotlight at the after party with 2 of our best friends who parked right beside us.
The feedback we received on our home and the work we’ve (Casey has) done was so uplifting. If you came and you happen to be reading this – THANK YOU! For your good energy, your smiles, and for being in our space with love.
Here are is one picture of the bus from the Detour, and then some more of recent work we’ve done on the bus…. Check out our amazing Holiday arragements from the creative geniuses at Blumen Meisters (flower masters in German)!! These women are amazing. The bus is getting closer and closer to being “done!” Not sure if we’ll ever feel we’re there. Every little bit completed makes such a huge difference in a small space!
A shot of our neighbor, and Casey’s best friend Bryant in front of their bus.
Now we get into the “real” pictures. As usual, I didn’t clean up for you. These are pictures of what the bus looks like on a daily basis. And yes, mother, I DO now make my bed every morning.
A shot of the bus standing in the bathroom doorway looking forward. I have every square inch of the dinette taken up with my work shtuff…
Looking back from the driver’s seat toward the dinette and kitchen. The cedar trim-out is done! All we have to do now is sell the awesomely huge cooktop, get a new one (with oven maybe!?), and finish out the cabinets to take the place of those burlap curtains.
A better view of the front from the dinette area. That pile on the left is our “give-away” pile that’s constantly changing…. Feels so good to purge!
Picked up some more magnets for photo display…

The first thing we see when we walk in our front door.
Jewelry and hat storage on my side of the bedroom. Wedding and Engagment pictures by the amazingly talented Anne Marie Photography.
A view of our bedroom from the bathroom. Most people were impressed with the shoe storage Casey built me on the side of the wall. Pretty handy!
Another view of the bedroom. Casey finished trimming it out with cedar the morning of the Detour! We LOVE the way this looks.
We dropped the shelf above the fridge to allow for more storage, and moved our dishes there, so that all our food could live together in the shelf above the sink/cooktop.
