This remodeled RV has the coziest fireplace you’ve ever seen in a tiny home (and it’s for sale!)

If you’re a sucker for black shiplap, white concrete counters, and interiors that are the perfect blend of earthy and modern, then you’re going to fall in love with this tiny home on wheels!

Karlee and Weston originally transitioned their family into tiny living for simplicity, but eventually had to sell their first RV for financial reasons. In other words, life had other plans for them.

This family renovates RV's and transforms them into incredible tiny homes! Featuring @karleemmarsh on MountainModernLife.com

While their journey may not have been what they expected, their story is inspiring because it’s filled with strength, faith, and triumph.

That turn of events, which may have seemed unfortunate at the time, has since set them on a new path, one they may not have ever imagined.

During their first RV renovation, they discovered their passion for transforming tiny spaces into tiny homes, and this husband and wife duo are now selling renovated RV’s. In fact, they just finished up their second RV remodel, which is currently for sale.

So if you’re looking for a beautifully renovated RV that’s ready-to-go for full-time living or part-time adventures, you may have found your match!

“This particular Reno was for resale. We wanted to design a space that would inspire someone to see they don’t need a big house in order to live comfortably and cozy.”

What piece of advice would you give someone just starting an RV remodel?

Don’t take short cuts. Make the repairs needed and do the details. I.e. sand the cabinets!

What was most challenging about your renovation?

Scheduling time to work on it on top of our other work schedules.

What project made the most difference?

The fireplace!! And countertops

Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?

Tjmaxx for sure!!

What made you originally decide to go “tiny”?

We decided to go tiny for simplicity. Our life was full of things and more things and managing things or cleaning things & we believed there was more by having less. We loved living tiny but ended up selling our first tiny home for financial reasons. However we discovered a love for design and working together as a team to transform tiny spaces into tiny homes. So we just finished our second rig and it’s for sale. We hope to live tiny again one day and own our own land.

Back when you were full-time RVing, what was one of your favorite aspects of tiny living?

Less cleaning!!

What was your least favorite aspect?

Lack of closet space and no garden tub

What is something you learned about yourself after living in an RV?

I learned that I can live with a lot less than I thought.

What was your favorite place to explore or a place you’re excited to explore in the future?

When we live tiny again I’d love to travel back out west and take our time making it across the country.

Most asked about product sources:

I love Cotton by Sherwin Williams, and the wallpaper from Spoonflower was great. Loved our countertop kit from Concrete Countertop Solutions. Our peel and stick tile from Lowe’s was great also but we needed extra adhesive.

Green Paint on Kitchen Cabinets: Sherwin Williams – Dried Thyme

Kitchen Curtains – DIY hack using hand towels from TJMaxx (You can watch the Instagram story showing how they were made here)

Flooring: Floor and Decor – Duralux Signature Hickory

Living Room Light Fixture – Ikea

Living room sleeper sofa: Ikea

Shades: Ikea

Bedroom Scones: Amazon

    I absolutely love this camper! My husband and I are trying to figure out the best way to go tiny. The only problem is we live in Michigan with some cold winters. Not sure what to do.

    Love the fireplace. Did you design around an existing Firebox or did you install a new one?

    So clean, bright and beautiful! How did you attach the fake beams and are they light weight? Fake wood or real wood “boxes”. Thank you for sharing so we can be inspired and not feel so lost in decision sometimes!
