Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on our static caravan plans, I can hardly wait to go and have a look. A lot depends on the internal condition and style of the caravan, but I already have a colour scheme and general 'look' in mind, having spent some time looking at ideas, Pinterest boards and makeover pictures from people who've done up their vans. It's all really exciting, I'm so looking forward to actually having our own caravan and doing it up, on a budget. Once we get going, I'll take lots of pictures and document our progress.
Joy, you asked if we could 'unofficially' let our van (once we get one!) to friends. No, I don't think that's an option.....I asked for and was given a printed copy of the site Ts&Cs, in which it states that no subletting is allowed, the site owner also told us verbally, so I reckon it's a no. I will ask him though if friends are allowed to stay in our absence, as I know a couple of our friends would be very interested - in fact, they've already asked if they can come and stay!
On the subject of pictures.....I want to do some artwork for the van (I have some canvases I bought quite cheaply) so have been doing some drawing this morning. Here's one:-
I do hope the inside of the caravan meets your requirements. I can feel your excitement. I love your picture of the tree branches. They look like silver birch. You'll be able to pick up a frame cheaply at a charity shop, and if it's not the right colour, you can paint it. Oooh, I'm getting carried away here! Please keep us updated. We want full descriptions and photos!😉 xxReplyDelete
Oh thank you HH, yes it is silver birch! I'm so pleased it's recognisable.Delete
I'm impressed with your drawing, there is movement and looks natural!ReplyDelete
Bless you Annabeth, thanks for that.Delete
Your art is so good. I envy your talent, but am also glad for you!ReplyDelete
Thanks B, everybody's good at something!Delete
Fair enough. Maybe unofficial barter, just for friends. I hope that's allowed but I can see the point of the restrictionsReplyDelete
Lovely drawing - you are so talented.
I'm glad subletting isn't allowed, actually - we'll get to know all our 'neighbours'. And thank you! xxDelete
We're not allowed sub let ours either but the doesn't mind four riends using it and they don't seem to mind giving me £10 a night to help with costs.ReplyDelete
That's a novel way of getting round it! ;-) Thanks Anne. We certainly don't want to sublet to strangers, but good friends are a different matter.Delete
The caravan park near us back in Wales didn't allow subletting, only close relatives could use your Van and you had to provide proof that they were indeed close relatives, how that was done I have no idea!!ReplyDelete
