Y’all know we were working hard to get the house in shape to put on the market. All that effort was worth it, because we had a contract on the house just six days after listing it. I’m feeling so blessed- tired, but blessed.
We will be closing on the deal in a couple of weeks, so with major help from my sister Lynn, I went from purging and cleaning to frantically packing.
We haven’t found a new place yet, so we are going a somewhat unusual route. If you follow on facebook, you have already seen a little peek of our camper. Yep, we’ll be moving into it until we find the perfect home.
Richard has been living in it for a few weeks now. I stayed with him last week, and it wasn’t as stifling as I feared. The camper is tiny, but has everything we need.
Just inside the door is the kitchen.
The kitchen runs along this end of the camper. Sink, stove, refrigerator- all lined up. Oh, and a microwave above the stove. There is a surprising amount of storage in the kitchen area.
The pop out gives us just enough space for a love seat in front of the fridge.
Opposite the only spot to sit is the bathroom. Correction, there IS one more place to sit….
Haven’t tried the shower yet. I’m extremely grateful there is a bath house at the campground. The water barely dribbles out of our sinks, so I have no desire to try taking a shower in here. Not sure if there is some sort of regulator on the camper for the water pressure? The water pressure seems fine at the hose.
The bed is in a cubby at the other end of the camper. This tight space has probably been the worst thing about camper living. I have always hated sleeping against a wall, so this is quite an adjustment for me.
It will be a challenge to live here long term (hopefully it won’t be toooo long term). Organizing will be critical in keeping our sanity. We will need to maximize every square inch.
Of course, most of our stuff is going into storage.
Could you live in an 18-ft camper? Got any small space storage suggestions?
