#25 Building the Bed!

As mentioned in the previous post about building the bulkhead we had to work out our measurements to tie in perfectly with both pieces of furniture. We knew the width and length we were going for and just needed to decide upon the height before we could start. We started with the main frame, but…

#24 The Bookcase/Bulkhead Frame

Right back at the beginning of this project, day 2 I believe, we decided to remove the bulkhead from the van (bit.ly/7Bulkhead) – it was an easy job which gave us some additional space and a lot more light. The plan was to build a half bulkhead, just behind the driver’s seat, which would house…

There were soft clouds rolling in the distance but Raasay was drenched in the bright morning light, illuminating all the details of its coastline. With the door open we packed up slowly, watching the clouds…
