Alluring Architect Designed Airstream Tiny Home TOUR



welcome to my home this is a 2006 Airstream international and it's a new style of Airstream on the interior up until 2000 most airstreams had a boat like interior but the company hired a local architect named Christopher Dean to design the first architect design interior for an Airstream and when I saw that as an architect I realized that they had taken care of all the issues that were preventing me from buying one and so then it became a slam-dunk that I actually had to buy one the first thing he did was to bring the aluminum skin in from the outside and what that did was it created a reflective surface that was never here before it was always wood or some kind of fabric and so the reflective surface means that the light bounces around the Airstream this particular model has 15 windows and two skylights and it's completely solar-powered it has enough holding tanks on board so that I can live for three days without being hooked up to anything so that means I'm off grid for power water and gas what I found is that being creative in a space with reflective surfaces actually reflects the creativity so you actually are tired less and inspired more when you have this kind of mirrored surface and your eyes are constantly seeing reflections of things and because they're curved of course they're distorted another thing that's really nice about it yes then he created this front area that I call the lounge and it has the it's the perfect dimension for conversation this is 12 feet architects always know that 12 feet is your maximum conversation distance so that means that I could sit here my partner or my guests can sit there and it's the perfect distance for for talking it's also a very good acoustic environment because of the reflective surface it kind of amplifies just the right amount of acoustics in fact sitting in the middle of the sofa there's two speakers in the ceiling on either side just inside the curved glass of the windows and the glass reflects the sound and so I keep telling myself this is the most expensive pair of headphones I've ever purchased because a sound sitting right in the middle is exactly perfect and there's nothing touching my ears the trailer came with this particular layout and I've just fallen in love with it I didn't think it had enough room to work it has it's perfect I love the big sink it has lighting in very beautiful places inside the cabinet so not only can you see but it gives you the effect of indirect lighting and really good work lighting and of course when the airstream when you first buy it it's just a raw interior and this is all stock by the way I didn't change anything I realized that I really I wanted to introduce textiles and I've always loved Tibetan carpets so I went on this quest and I found this carpet up north in Northern California and it sort of set my color theme of the the black burgundy and gold and the floor had some of the gold feeling in it before and the black was already here in the laminate but the burgundy was my key and so then I found the bedspread with the burgundy and I just went from there you know introducing those colors so coming back this way we have this unusual bathroom arrangement that the designer came up with where the showers here in the main part of the bathrooms here and the door forms a bridge between the two which allows the shower to become part of the bathroom so when you open the door it creates a privacy screen and allows you to get undressed move back and forth between the bathroom in the shower and you can still have people in the front part trailer so coming back a little further we have this really nice bedroom area with a walk around bed so many trailers and tiny houses have bids installed against a wall or in a loft and for a person my age it's really important to be able to make the bed from both sides and stand up around the bed while making it because making the bed leaning over on my knees is really uncomfortable one of the another nice thing here is that there's lighting in the cabinets and two sets of lights here here above the bed and here for reading so this is one of the general problems that a lot of RVs have had in the past is not having really good lighting we have these hanging lockers and boot lockers on the side and then the whole bed lifts up and there's complete storage underneath [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] hey guys Alexis and Christian here with tiny-house expedition don't forget to Like comment and subscribe and click left or right for more tiny house stories and tours
