Would it be easier to buy an already assembled shed and a space heater and make that the office in the backyard?

Gene, clients love the cachet of the Airstream! It's part of the shitz.
Like a lawyer - I can charge more!

Besides that, I don't know how long I'll be parked here. An Airstream improvement is always mobile.

I would also have room to put a comfortable wing chair in the bedroom/office so I'd have a place to relax and read.

So thrilled for you to bring your dream to fruition.
Your idea to remove the queen bed, replace it with a smaller one, and add office space sounds good.
Will you be hosting business meetings in the FaN? If so, you may wish to have your bed out of sight. Two options come to mind. One is some type of twin sized Pullman bed at the end of the trailer. The other is to have a comfortable chair that converts to a bed.
Not sure if you have ever looked at the Hoffman architecture website but they certainly do some incredible renovations.
Please keep us posted about the business and the renovations.

PS when are you coming to New Orleans?

Business space in an AS

Have been busy doing lot so photos lately, little time for Air forums. But, as i heard the word "food", and making money from unhatched eggs, I knew I was in the right place.....LOL.

And, for you, FaN, when the really big contract comes through...think, Bunkhouse 30 footer, make the bunk bed area into an office....or....the enter front queen area.....yeah!

And, the sun always rises.....

MsMoto's suggestion is way better than mine BUT assumes that you would part with the FaN.
Your call, of course. Please keep us posted.

PS and when exactly are you coming to New Orleans? In time for Jazz Fest? Perfect!

We are at 200 years since the end of the War of 1812. The US did badly in that one and was crushed at the Battle of St. Catherines (I think that was the name; if not, it was near there). But Britain, exhausted by the Napoleanic Wars, was glad to end it without regaining some territory it had lost in the American Revolution. Otherwise, every "South Canadian" would have health insurance and would be voting today in the 60 provinces.

Actually Gene it was the Americans who went to Europe and sued for peace since the did not relish the idea of a Britain no longer distracted in Europe being able to bring her full focus on the affairs in the new world.

I think both sides wanted out of that war. It is a lesson for Americans that rushing into a war when you are totally unprepared, overestimate your capabilities and listen to jingoists is not a good idea. Unfortunately, we haven't learned that lesson well. When I was in elementary school (shortly after the War of 1812) they taught us the US never lost a war. Technically true at the timeó1812 was a draw; not true anymore.

Both here and in the USA the official line was that the war was won and the other side lost. Truth is nobody gained anything, much blood was spilled and the native people lost any hope of ever having their own sovereign place.

Funny how no one seems to be celebrating 200 years since the end of the war. One anniversary that gets ignored.

Hi All - thanks for keeping the Breakfast Show going. The "big deal" is still up-in-the-air. Business can be brutal.

Speaking of war and anniversaries - have been fooling around with the rebuild of this Canadian Ace's biplane: Destination: the 100th anniversary flyover at Vimy Ridge, April 2017.



Well, back to Walbernizing the FaN. It's supposed to start raining tomorrow. Could be the last sunny day until Spring!
