The Nose Knows

We went to see the trailer. It's almost perfect except it has the smell that's been in almost all the trailers we've looked at. It's a sharp chemical smell that might well be headache and nausea inducing and I worry that it's indicative of some bad chemical outgassing. I can't tell if I'm overreacting or being justifiably cautious. I wouldn't want to spend over 30k on a trailer, move me, my kid and all my stuff into it and then discover that living in it makes me sick.

But it's so close to perfect. I'm thinking about it. I told the sellers I'd let them know by Monday afternoon.

After we looked at the trailer, we went to Tiny Texas Houses. The houses are really cool and the space is much more livable than I had imagined. But they are really set up for one person or a close couple, not for a mother and son. Also most of them smelled musty to both me and G. But they were cute as could be.
