After years of trying to keep the old stable clean - and having zero success - we finally decided to turn it into a combo "motorcycle + sleeping quarters." How do you do this? Not as simple as it sounds. (Or we thought it would be.) Step 1: Jack it up! (Replace the rotten sills and get a little extra headroom.) Step 2: Build a new foundation and pour a fresh slab. Step 3: Rip out the 1920s cloth wrap wiring and get it up to code. Step 4: Insulate. Install a heater. Step 5: Add three new carriage house windows and add glass windows to the carriage doors. Step 5: Build a sitting room deck and a sleeping loft. Step 6: Bring in the bear. And the fish. Antlers. Bar. Step 7: Park the Ural in her new home (as shewas here first - she's just gonna share her space with you.) Welcome to the garage cabin. THE DEETS: Loft ladder: 100 year old hand-carved by a Wisco farmer. Textiles: All antique sourced via found, free & flea. Lighting: Salvaged gas station lighting. Friends: 1 fish, 1 bear.
