Yes I am excited!!
Today my friend Lucy brought over the bed frame. We quickly put it in the truck. Perfect fit.
Now we really got busy. I brought out the saw horses and we carried out the plywood I have had in the shed for years. Lucy took the measurements and cut the wood to fit the frame. Once this was done I carried them to the truck and got them in place. Next was to screw them to the frame. Lucy first drilled pilot holes and then used the longer sheet rock screws. Done.
Either tomorrow or Monday I will buy the foam for the mattress and get that cut down to fit. I need to get some twin sheets at a second hand store and sew them to fit, also need a mattress pad.
Then as a added bonus she made 5 Artic Ice tubes. Lucy found the directions for making them on line they called them Polar Bear Tubes. These are made of PVC pipe and end caps. Measure the interior of you ice chest and cut the tubes to fit, remember the end caps have to be counted for the length. Glue one side with pipe dope wait for it to completely dry. Then fill 90 % of the way with water. Then glue the other end closed. Freeze them and you have the best way to keep your cooler cold and food stays dry. If you keep the inside clean this water can be used in an emergency if needed.
These are what the tubes look like. Someone asked me how long they last, this I cannot answer as I have never used them before.
I have more room now between the bed and the wheel well on the right side
There is room for one more storage bin under there and Fred's bed. Fred loves hidey holes and I bet he will run right to the end spot under the bed. We made sure to have the space for him
I will take more pictures when the job is done. Hope to get out the week after next.
Good Night All
