There’s something timelessly glamorous about train travel. Maybe it’s the idea of watching the world whiz past you, or the thrill of in tirge like in Murder on the Orient Express.
Or maybe it’s just how a surprising amount of comfort and even elegance can be packed into such a small space. Whatever it is, trains are beloved by people of all ages.
And that’s why one house in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, is so charming, because it’s a historic train caboose and a modern, comfortable tiny summer home!
The caboose was constructed in 1912, and the exterior has been restored to look just like it would have back in its day, with a cherry-red pain job and black and gold accents for a smart, punchy style. And it’s even still got its original wheels, and is parked on a piece of track on the secluded, woodsy property.
This isn’t the first train car to be converted into a home, and train cars, for a lot of creative builders and homemakers, are a great way to create a recycled home and preserve a little piece of history at the same time.
In fact, the Sturgeon Bay train house also comes with another piece of history right on the property: the station house!
Because the station and caboose are both rather small, they come as a unit so a larger family can stay there comfortably. And the station house is adorable, too.
