This remodeled RV has the coziest fireplace you’ve ever seen in a tiny home
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.
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 running a business where they sell renovated RV’s, and take on clients for custom work.
Today we’re taking a look at the second RV they remodeled (which has been sold).

Type of RV:
2008 Montana 3585SA
How long did the renovation take?
How much did it cost?
Where you do draw your inspiration from?
Instagram and by shopping. I usually find one or two items of decor that I absolutely love and then build the design around that.
How would you describe your decorating style?
Earthy, neutral & maybe some mid century modern.
What piece of advice would you give someone just starting an RV remodel?
Don’t take shortcuts. 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 (now sold!). 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?
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.
