We just purchased a home away from home in Ocean City, Maryland. Both my husband and I grew up having fun in OC. It’s all fun when your a kid. Amusements, rides, sun, sand, and surf; what more could you want? Even at our age, it still calls to us.


We bought a mobile home, with a bit of a history. It used to belong to my husbands parents 27 years ago. It was sold because they decided to build a home outside of OC. We offered to buy it and his father refused to sell it to us. When we asked him why he said “I want to get paid”. We laughed, truth was, they wanted us to stay with them and not at the beach. I must admit, we weren’t in a position to buy it back then anyway. So here we are, back at the old vacation place.

It’s going to take some love and elbow grease to get it the way we want it. Picking out paint, repairing and removing to make it ours. Hopefully it will be just as fun and memorable for our family and friends as it was for us years ago. Time to make new memories!

So here it is. Two bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, and one bathroom. Oh the stories this place could tell if it could talk. Here are the before pics. I will post our progress on my FB page Around the Butcher Block. One room at a time with some time off for sun and fun. Let me know your thoughts. I am open to thoughts and ideas to maximize our tiny space, all constructive ideas are welcome.

I hope you enjoy our transformation. If your in the area, stop by with a paint brush. We can certainly use a few more hands to get the job done.

Til next time,

Ciao xoxo
