Nestled about a mile back, Richard’s 54 acres of wild land are salt and peppered with airstream, silver stream and pathfinder trailers. He has been restoring these so folks like you and me can stay and enjoy the regions steeply sloped unspoiled dreamy wilderness. What else is great is that this place, which straddles the line somewhere between camping and motel, is that it’s off the grid. Richard lives on a steady diet of solar power, propane gas and farm fresh eggs…

Can a girl go weak at the knees over a caravan? Oh please! This ain’t no caravan. She’s a sleek and shiny 70s era Airstream. This baby was lovingly restored by Santa Barbara architect Matthew Hofmann. She’s small, efficient, renovated with recycled and sustainable materials and is the live + work space for Matthew and his girlfriend. But most importantly she is sexy! Alas she wasn’t always this hot. More like hot mess as you will see after the jump.
