Spotlight on Glamping
Designer, Margaret Shutze, chose Stikwood to create a warm, open and inviting space where guests would feel welcome within a small footprint.
What were you hoping to achieve with this cool glamping project?
This project was unique in that we were essentially designing and building a tiny home; but it had to move. The goals were to create a warm, open and inviting space where guests would feel welcome within a very small footprint. We wanted the space to feel luxurious, more of a clamping feel. The materials we used had to be light and survive movement of the camper, which is a little more challenging than you would think!
Give me three words to describe this space.
Fresh, cozy and cheerful.
What as the most challenging part of this project?
The biggest challenges were designing and building it in a short time frame, designing in a tiny space and within a small budget. We also had to think about wear and tear since it is rented almost every night.
What did you find most rewarding about this project?
The biggest reward is when we meet our guests and show them to Barbara Ann. Their faces light up and they have the biggest smiles. We are now welcoming repeat guests (pretty amazing since we have only been renting her since mid June) which is the ultimate compliment.

Need a short and sweet fix for style-devoid walls? Wainscoting is a great option! Used for centuries, the framed wall paneling is perfect for covering up minor wall damage that’s already there, or simply protecting the wall from everyday wear and tear. No matter where the wainscoting rises to, either one-third or two-thirds up the wall, it’s a classic way to incorporate personality into a room. While beadboard and square moldings are traditional looks, they aren’t the only way to go. Peel and stick wood is another option that cuts the install time in half, since you don’t have to measure and cut molding into perfect squares then nail it all into the wall. Before you give the look a whirl, check out these winning examples of peel and stick wainscoting.
