A portion of the significant renovation of two small bedrooms in a substantial Adirondack camp included the design and construction of a pair of bunk beds and a daybed to match the existing interior woodwork of the house. Working from an image provided for visual inspiration by the client, design focused on accomplishing a multifaceted goal- from two small, uninviting rooms create a comfortable and inviting sleeping arrangement that would also provide seating and “hang-out” space.
Using clear, vertical grain (CVG) Douglas Fir, parts for all three pieces of furniture were worked mass-production style through dimensioning and joinery. Floating mortise and tenon joints provided strength while maintaining the clean lines of the simple design.
Slowly, small pieces became larger elements.
Despite the room-scaled size of the pieces, small details remained important.
The room complete: a pair of mirror-image bunks flanking a comfortable daybed.
Importantly, this work is from my day job with Crowl Construction, of Keene NY.
