So I will start off with the fact that I live in a trailer. So I am no newbie when it comes to small spaces or trying to make room where there is no room.
It seriously feels like that is all I do anymore is rearrange things in my home trying to make room for everything!
I will get one project done and most of the way cleared up when I am onto another project. It doesn’t help either, that I am very big on bartering.
I love trading for new items. I have been selling things online for 2-3 years now. But I really started to acquire a whole lot this last year. I am all the time coming across very good deals with the people that I know. So I will get new things and then I look around and see no room for these new items.
So it’s then time to start another project. I will clear out closets, rearrange areas and rooms in my home, and start getting rid of old things that I really don’t need and would probably never sell. All to make room for my new treasures.
I have become an avid do it yourselfer. Since I discovered how to use google when I started back to college about 4 years ago, I have been on a kick of learn everything and do everything myself. So I guess I would call myself a project junkie these days. I have been fixing up my trailer since I bought it 3 years ago. And I never seem to run out of things to do with making it look better in one area or another.
It was definitely a fixer upper when I bought it on contract 4 years ago. Livable, but in desperate need of some TLC.
I will now post some pictures of my front and back yard. I wish I had some before pictures of my yard, but somehow I don’t have too many of before I got started working on it.
Just keep in mind that you could hardly walk around the back of the trailer and get to the front again. It was not a bit walker friendly lol! So when you see some of these pictures they may not appear to be the best landscaping in the world, but it’s actually a lot when compared to how it was here before. And the fact that I have had very little money to fix this place up. I have had to cut corners and find deals where there were no deals basically. Just to get done what I have gotten done so far. And while I didn’t have the money to put into this place like I wanted to do, it did help me a lot with my construction skills, my decorating skills, and many other things I had no clue how to do before I moved in here. So by having to use cheap material and used materials, I definitely got better at doing these things. I have had to rebuild my sheds a couple times now.
Just to make them better and bigger as time has went by. The good thing about that was how I got better each time that I did something. So it is steadily progressing towards better around here. It is a slow process however. And I don’t expect to win the lottery anytime soon. So I will probably just have to keep going the way I have been going.
On a shoestring budget basically.
