A place to sleep

A bed

Last week we had our first night in the bus, woohoo! But no, not on the road, just still parked up here. The double bed was done a while ago, but I had just finished the bunk beds last week (next post).

So here are the bed’s before and after shots

The Rimu boards around the bed are fantastic and give it a real bachy feel. Or is that the sun shining through the window? Ah, what a nice place to chill out. And the best part about it is that now we can host guests (like, say, celloist Alana Suzanne Frances Hart-Henderson. Hey, a housebus concert would be wicked, you keen?).



We continued the Rimu boards around the back, over the steps covering the motor, and on either side of the bed. A simple frame is holding up the bedbase, which was kindly given to us by Dave and Jos, and providing heaps of storage space. Just today we picked up two custom gas struts to support lifting the bed when accessing the storage part.
