It all started with an old trailer, and a heart for design. We were in between jobs and needing to find a creative outlet for the two of us (husband and wife) to enjoy and also make a prophet on!

In walks this drabby (is that a word?!) 2010 Keystone Cougar Fifth Wheel. She was rough from the start, but our minds exploded with ideas as soon as we saw her! Remove the upper cabinets, add a gas range hood, imagine white hexagon tiles as a backsplash, gold accents! Wait! Could we fit a bunk here?! And so demo day came and went and we were left with the most beautiful piece of art we have ever created together: The Cougar Den - we affectionately call her.

The best part about her?! She's for sale and she can make your tiny home dreams come true!
