“I love vintage,” wrote Belle in her May 7 email to HofArc. Less than three months later her vintage 1967 Airstream Overlander was delivered to her Cheyenne, Wyoming ranch.
“When I came across the HofArc website I was pulled deeper into the possibilities,” added Belle who treasures Western living with her husband, Vic, in Wyoming and Texas. “We do not currently own an Airstream to design, but we have looked at thousands over the past year.”
HofArc found the ideal Airstream for them and “worked some magic.”
“The renovation was able to move along swiftly because Belle was able to articulate what she wanted,” says the HofArc president and designer Matthew Hofmann. “The contrasting colors, such as the black granite countertops and white walls, and textures of bamboo tabletops and flooring, work very well together.”
Here’s an overview of Belle and Vic’s brilliant silver Southwestern Sante Fe style ranch house on wheels.
The interior living space offers two beds – a dinette in front that converts to a large bed (88″ x 49″) and a single bed (76″ x 32″) in the back.
In addition to all new cabinet faces, overhead slider fronts, with German Hafele Hardware and custom aluminum trim, the all-new appliances and systems and finishes include:
- Superlight black granite countertops
- Two strand bamboo slab tabletops
- Bamboo flooring
- 100% recycled glass tile
- New Dometic air conditioner
- New Dometic refrigerator
- Moen stainless steel kitchen sink
- Contemporary commercial-style faucet
- Thermostatically-controlled Atwood furnace
- Atwood water heater
- 3-burner Wedgewood steel stovetop
- Completely painted with environmentally safe zero-VOC
- Cushions and Sunbrella fabrics
- New rollup window shades
Of course, the exterior skin was polished to a mirror shine. Belle will be decorating the interior with a mix of old Navajo textiles, bright oil pastels, sterling and vintage crystal accents.
