About the Airstream

The story goes like this. Business was really picking up in 2009 and we received packages almost daily. One day, I returned home to find boxes stacked four feet high at our front door.  The funny UPS man tossed the welcome mat over the top of the pile and placed a sticky note on the door with the “under the mat” box checked.

Overwhelmed and running out of room, we began to consider options for building a space on the property. We thought about the expense and time needed to build something of that magnitude and quickly turned to a more creative solution. I received a tip from a friend who guided me to airstreamclassifieds.com and within 2 weeks I had found a trailer – a 1963 Safari Airstream trailer ready to remodel.

We spent the month of February remodeling. (Read about the remodel over at Inhabitat.com) Erik removed hundreds of rivets to rewire and insulate the walls. Floor and sub-floor were replaced, and it took one whole day to figure out how to put in the jalousie (slatted) window.

Now the home of 26 Letters Graphic Recording Studio, this Airstream trailer is the perfect place to plan for live graphic recordings, shoot video and conduct all creative endeavors that support our delicious life here in the Southwest.
