Photos of the finished Bunk House...

You may remember we installed a little portable building out back. It's for when we have all the kids and grand kids in so we have more room. 
It's a bit like staying in a hostel or a rooming house. You get a bed and the bathroom is down the hall or in this case in the big house. You can also eat with us if you choose but be aware most major food chains now have outlets in our fine city so if ou gotta have your Cracker Barrel go ahead.  

A project that turned out nice and arty is the conversion of the old original door to our house into a bed headboard. We cut the door into 4 pieces and used three of them assembled to fit the bed with as the headboard. I had the idea to convert the door to something other use because after all it's a good heavy piece of wood. It was Cathy's idea to make it a headboard. Lamp next to the bed is called the Uncle Woody. It was made by a relative of Cathy's.  
The cloth painting that hangs in the old "door" window was found in a New Orleans thrift store. It dicpict a bunch of cave men and women running a dragon with seven deadly sins inscribed on his back off a cliff. Read more on this piece in an old blog post at this link
I mentioned there were four pieces to the door. I used the remaining one to make a table to hold a mirror that came from Cathy's grandmother's house. Cathy estimates to mirror is possibly 100 years old. 
Inside walls are covered by mostly thrift store bought heavy upholstery stapled to bare studs in the wall and ceiling. Heat is provided by this decorative electric heater. Katie and Petter were first tenants over the holidays and they reported heater was adequate. The live in Chicago so you would think they should know. 
And of course a little bit landscape by Carl and there you have it. I do hope these shrubs grow big enough to justify the purchase of a ferocious man tool to keep their bushiness in check.
