Reclaimed/Recycled Wood Bed Frames

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

If you don’t count finding the wood, taking apart whatever it was before, removing the nails, and cleaning it up; then it really only took us a few hours to put these bed frames together.

Oliver’s bed is made from a found futon frame (the nice looking ends), and some cheap, real wood cabinets we bought extremely cheap from a thrift store in town.  The queen size bedframe is made from the same cabinets and a pine futon frame (different than Oliver’s).  Both were designed to have airflow underneath the bed to help with mold issues in the summer.

We’re planning to write a booklet on the different projects we implemented this year, and the design for these will definitely be included, as they were very simple to construct, and in the case of the queen size bed frame, has looots of storage under it.

The Sign

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

It’s official!  We have a sign.

Our friend and biking superhero Emily/Stardust made a sign for the front of the house.  It’s resting next to a flag pole support on the front of the house.

The next question is, what kind of flag should we put up?

Emily is currently planning a superhero service bike ride through Mexico for this winter.  If that sounds appealing, we can send you her contact.

Many thanks Stardust for the beautiful sign!
