Is there really a Holiday House?

So we just got back from Palm Springs Modernism week and Mike fell in love with the Holiday House that was there. He told me that if I could find one, then he wouldn’t mind going camping in it. So as soon as I got back home I started my search.

Lo and behold, on ebay there was a “Holiday House Lugnut” for sale. $9,000 dollars? What?! There were pictures of a Holiday House but we both know that could be copy and pasted from anywhere! So I texted. After about 6 hours and countless back and forth (he wouldn’t send any pictures or tell me where it was located, only to tell me to send him the money via paypal). HA! That wasn’t going to happen!

So I told Mike who took over the negotiation. A few more hours and the deal was done. I just needed to pick it up. (um What?! Where???). It would have to wait a few months because the mountain pass was closed but in Spring Edward would let us know.

Long story short, in May I contacted an acquaintance from Modernism Week (Tim Brown-he’s the one that restored that Holiday House and it won Best in Show!).

So I met Tim Brown past Auburn, CA and we jumped in his white truck which he had spare tires, jumper cables and all sorts of implements to help bring this trailer back (if there was one..still not sure). And headed for…um…..Termo, CA.

To tell you how far out we were, there was one of these!!!

Miles of nothing and then our GPS said we have arrived. There was one house with a fence around it. Could the fence be hiding a Holiday House?


A quick signoff on paperwork with the owners wife.

So this is what it looked like:

Drivers side back corner.
A very quick exterior exam and a tire change – oh and they threw in a mounted deer head for Tim!
Small issue with tire , but nothing that holding our breath couldn’t fix! LOL
Tim is showing off the luck we had. Enlarged lug holes. Always check to make sure everything is snug. Never assume.
Made it to Tim’s workshop! Let the rehab begin!!
