Peter tidied up inside the motorhome. After working on the queen bed it was quite a mess. Time to take some pictures for the web site. Next job the kids triple bunk beds.

May 2015

This month Peter started on the kids bunk beds.

Saturday (2 May 2015) Peter had planned to buy the bunk bed material and start making the kids triple bunk beds. However, Peter's wife, Alison, had a car accident, Friday, on the way to school pick-up. Fortunately Alison and Joel (youngest son) are ok, but the car is most likely a write-off. So the motorhome project will once again have to wait.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have suffered loss due to the terrible floods in the Brisbane area on Friday (1 May).

The larger spacing is roomy and allows for 3 bunk beds. We have four kids, so one will need to sleep at the front on the motorhome.

Here are the three kids bunk beds (1880 by 760mm with about 700mm between each bunk).

Next, Peter will need to get and cut the wood to make the walls, front, and bases of the bunk beds.
