How To Remodel An Old Camper Into A Cozy Living Space: A Teen Girl's Experience

Nowadays, tiny houses and campers became quite popular among people and are considered both cheap and cozy. We've already told you a lot of stories about people changing their houses or apartments for something smaller and even unsual, sometimes made by their own hands.
So, here's another inspiring story about a teenager who now has a cool space all to herself.
At the time, Ellie Yeater was only 14 years old. She saved up $500 and used it to purchase an old camper.
She bought the camper which was on sale online and only spent $200 to remodel it into an epic living space.
Evidently, the DIY spirit runs in the family. Ellie's older brother, Isaiah, built a tiny cabin on the family's property, and this inspired the young girl.
She worked hard on the camper which was once used for camping and hunting.
Ellie wanted to have her own hangout spot, but she wanted it to look really good so she could have electricity and WiFi.
The inside is painted with peach and polka dots, which gave the space a more fun look.
Ellie had her family's help too. Her father made the carpentry and grandma made curtains. It definitely runs in the family!
She tiled the floor and even made an awesome pathway that leads to her own personal fun spot.
The girl spent all summer collecting various things such as lamps that could be used to make her cool space more homely.
She couldn't wait to start inviting friends over.
What do you think? Pretty awesome for a 14-year-old, right? We think so too. Very impressive!
What is even more impressive is Ellie's second, similar project but with much bigger and more important purpose. To save her 13-year-old friend battling brain cancer, Elijah "Eli" Clark, the girl decided to start a fundraising campaign.
Ellie bought another camper, in much worse condition than the previous one, and turned it into a beautiful glamper. But the main purpose of this renovation was to sell a new glamper to support her friend not only morally, but financially too.
And, of course, she made it, selling her glamper and raising as much as $13,169 for Elijah!
What a creative, kind, and supportive girl Ellie is! We wish her and Eli Clark many more years of friendship to come!
