Lori from the blog, Woodworking Adventures, shared Ellie’s story, and it’s pretty amazing.
After finding a 1974 Wilderness camper (needing a lot of work done to it) for sale for the low price of $200, Ellie decided to make it her new “glamping” project.
“Her mother Lori calls her ‘an out-of-the-box kinda kid’ who had saved up around $500 from birthdays and chores to buy and refurbish the camper,” Lori wrote on her blog post about the projects.
The outside was worn, the floors were disgusting, and nothing worked.
After Ellie and her family found the perfect spot to set the camper, she bought all of the supplies she needed and got to work!
“It was in pretty rough shape, previously used as a campsite and hunting camper,” Lori wrote on her post.
The first thing she did was pull up the old vinyl flooring and lay tile on top for a cleaner look.
Lori explained that having lived on a large property, Ellie’s older brother had an old hangout at a cabin where he would go with his friends, and she wanted something similar -- except she wanted electricity and wifi!
The last step after making all the renovations was to decorate everything!
