Fabulous website freshome, dedicated to interior design and architecture, has this interview with Matthew Hofmann from Hofmann Architecture, who explains why he restored a 1970's Airstream trailer into an efficient and environmentally friendly living and working space.

Things that I needed to take around with me wherever I went; a truckload sized ball and chain.
