Blueprints and growing space

After looking at the bed frame, and realizing that my numbers were off, I decided to create a blueprint with a little more detail. I used 1in for every 1ft in the diagram so I can try and measure out spacing and see what goes where. Underbed storage was an easy answer – wet, salty and heavy items down below (where the rust holes make convenient draining options!) and cabinets up front, that double as the headboard.

Jeff is particular about his bed space – he can’t spend his daytime or non-sleep time in the bedroom – so he needed to make sure the bed space was separated from the “living space.” A headboard and some curtains will do the job, and plans for a bean-bag chair, and some outdoor chairs will work fine when it’s not raining.

The odd part I’m finding with this van build, is that I think I won’t have enough room – but then I find that I keep finding MORE room! Like the van is growing, and we find more new ways to add touches and create those storage pockets.

Stay tuned for Jeff’s cabinet, next!
