My Husband is Famous :)

We had NO idea when Ben was planning the triple bunk beds for our children that so many others had the same problem! We have had hundreds of emails about those beds. It's so exciting to think that we could help other big families work out these same issues. We have been teasing Ben about being famous for his handy work, but today I think he really made it! His design was featured on Apartment Therapy today! What?!

So, I have already shared what awesome forts can be made out of his bed design, and you know how cool they look just as beds, but today I want to show you one more reason I think Ben is a genious....

...the pack-n-play fits perfectly into the bottom bed space! My little Claire is not quite ready to sleep in a big girl bed, and this one just took up so much floor space in the girl's room, so yesterday Ben just stuck it in there and it fit! Now when she is ready for a big girl bed she will already be used to her little cubby. :) xo, Sam

PS I didn't want anyone to worry, there is NOT a mattress under her pack-n-play. It's just a blanket under there to cover the ugly plywood. The girls didn't like that showing. :)

i think if it was me, i would take the mattress out of the bed before the pack and play is used....

Whoot-whoot!! Congrats to him for finally getting famous! lol How does he feel about his new found fame?

Also, I think it's an ingenious idea to put her pack n' play there in that space. She's going to be used to her space when she's ready to sleep in her big girl bed, and that will hopefully make the transition very easy.

The mattress isn't under there. :) If you look close you can see that it's just a blanket there so that the ugly plywood wouldn't show. :)

Yikes, I just read some of the comments on Apartment Therapy. Some are really rude, I hope you don't take them to heart. I guess Fame isn't all it's cut out to be. I think the bunks are awesome! and I think your growing family is even awesomer!!

Samantha Caffee said...

I haven't read them, and now I surely won't! Lol! Thanks Hun!

Congratulation to Ben and the awesome job he's done on the bunks. I just wish my hubby was a bit handier around the house...I have so many ideas!

Congratulations; what a thrill! I think your bunks are awesome; such a great way to use a small space well.

My husband is going to build these this week for our 3 daughters So we can get them out of the master bedroom now that my mom moved out and we can move out of the basement!! :) If I hadn't found these we'd be stuck in the basement til we move in a few years!!! Thank you! I did have a question though, what kind of mattress do you use in them?

Samantha Caffee said...

Nicole, it's just a standard twin mattress. :)
