We had custom sized laminated latex and foam mattresses mad for Redford. I picked them up on Tuesday and did a test fit yesterday. The goal was to have comfortable seating for the day but an easily convertible bed for sleeping at night. In terms of bedding I'm planning on using a sleeping bag most of the the time and Angela is thinking of using a comforter "taco style." This will allow for quick take down and set up of the bed. I'm going to see about stuffing the sleeping bag and comforter into cushion covers so that they will act as cushions during the day and not need extra storage space. I laid on the cushions and they are very comfortable.
I got all of the window frames installed today. This allowed me to continue with panelling the walls.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
