Version 2.0 - Bunk & Double Conversion
To be honest, as a couple sleeping on the twin sucks. We appreciated the floor space, but the twin got old. When we started out in May 2015, our girls were 15 months & 3 months old. Today they're 2 & 3yrs old. And getting bigger every day. Sleeping in a crib on the front gaucho just isn't going to work anymore.
So we decided to build toddler bunks that should suffice for the next 2-3 yrs. And we decided to build a bigger bed for mommy and daddy.
I've seen a lot of interesting bunk installs on the road. And I came up with several layouts, but somehow, in the end, we came up with a layout very similar to what we had before, just reversed with different dimensions.
We have 90 inches of floor space in the middle of the rear bedroom from the front of the Airstream to the start of the hallway. A Double (Twin) is about 54Wx74L inches. And a toddler bed is 27Wx52L. So we split the difference.
Custom size double for Mom & Dad at 48 inches wide. We loose 5 inches. And 74 inches long. But this time, we'll be sleeping up against the front panoramic windows.
The lower toddler bed is for the youngest, so it gets compressed to 42 inches long. (Our youngest is also smaller than her sister. The oldest is in the 96th percentile for height, while the youngest is in the 26th). The upper bunk is 55 inches long. Both bunks are 27 inches wide.
I've also determined, I'll still have room, now on the opposite wall for a standing desk.
Anyways, I just began framing and assembly. So here are some early photos.
I basically have no idea what I am doing.
