Build a house. What else? I'm a nurse, my wife is a nurse and both of her parents are nurses.

We moved mom out three years ago and into a camper. The plan was to make that camper last as long as possible then build her something more permanent. I came across a deal I couldn't pass up: an Ulrich 16x32 shell. It was only a mile down the road and got it moved in just before Christmas last year. It was slow but we finally got it done. Between two shoulder surgeries, a foot surgery, switching nursing jobs and expenses, we moved mom in three weeks ago. Four nurses, about $8k in material and a little bit of time.....

First load: 5/8 sheetrock, wire, framing material


Insulated and wired


Opened up the ceiling. 5/8 ain't no joke


This is an art, not just slapped on


That blows


I didn't pick gray, but it went in in two coats


Storage loft over the bathroom


Cabinets before being painted


Completed pictures. Shower in the bathroom


Open concept. Bedroom, living room with kitchen

Part of the living room


Part of the kitchen


We didn't hire a bit out and it's not half bad. We put down vinyl flooring, runs on 100 amperes, has a 30 gallon water heater and propane. Right around 500 square feet. Mom just turned 60 so it'll last her lifetime. After that, I might have to re-do the walls from the depressing gray and hang an elk shoulder mount up there. She is sentimental and didn't want a lot of new things so she used some of her old stuff and mix and matched her "stuff".

4 nurse's and you did it all yourselves! I'd say that's "skilled labor" up

Looks fantastic
