Mobile Home Makeover #2 - Still In Progress

We went across to trailer #1 this afternoon. We loaded up a 16 foot trailer and the back of Hubby's pickup for a landfill run tomorrow morning. We should have just loaded the big ol dump truck and used it. We have 1 more load to do after this one.  Then I start painting and we start fixing it up.
I promised pictures of the outside of Trailer #2. When we first started working on it.  Remember This One?
 All we had done was put in the new windows. I also have a new front door, and a porch, and a metal roof, and underpinning, and it painted, and siding, and shutters.... lol  You get the picture...



As you can tell by the tools and the 5 gallon bucket of paint, it is still a work in progress. I guess you can say I live out on the porch.. I sit in the rocker and rock away.... 
I don't know what I will do with all these ferns this winter. I have 3 Queen Ferns.. I don't know what I need to do to winterize them. I would love to try to keep them alive through the winter..  The hanging ones I can handle them.. I have a place to store them and I know they will shed some this winter.
Does anyone know what I can do with the Queen Ferns. They are in pots and buckets. There is the one hanging, but it is in the original bucket it came in. I take it out of the hanging basket when it rains so it can drink... It has doubled it's size this summer. 
Cross Stitch News - I am mailing out my Halloween Swap/Exchange in the morning.. I decides so last minutes changes.. Glue gun is heating up here at 10:53 pm.. How is that for working down to the minute?  lol  I hope my stitcher friend loves what I am mailing out to them!  I smell glue heating!!  Till Later....

You are so lucky, I would love to live in a mobile home. I spent several years living in a caravan as a child whilst waiting for a house to be built and loved it. Even today I will holiday in caravans...I just think they ar so much nicer and easier to maintain than brick houses..or stone and rubble which is what I am in now. I love what you are doing to your home..it looks very exotic: I could almost imagine being in some savannah. Sigh...it is a bit cold for them here in Ireland though I guess.

THOSE FERNS ARE SO PRETTY, I HOPE YOU FIND A WAY TO SAVE THEM!

Those ferns are beautiful. I think they would be OK inside. They might not grow as fast, but they would probably come through OK.

The house looks really nice!You should be proud of yourself!
