Bonus Room

Even in an 800 sq.ft. house, I ended up with a bonus room. It was a challenge to squeeze in two beds, a writing table, and a pseudo-closet.

Looking in.

It's kind of a Canadiana themed room. The gray blanket is from Ontario, the other a classic Hudson's Bay. My mom made the cushions... in Canada. The lamps were from extra shop lights I, er, just had hanging around.

The frame is strong and in good shape.

Pack light and don't steal the logo'd robes. They are available
for purchase in the gift shop.

Another winter project was to build the kitchen island that stores under the main kitchen counter. The stow-away idea courtesy of my girlfriend, Alice. Save the top, and wheels, it is made entirely of reclaimed lumber and scraps.

All joints are doweled and glued.

Shown rolled in place.

The fir should darken to match over time.

The final product. The shelf is made of old, clear cedar.
