BEFORE

Cedar bed kit purchased from Sportsman's Guide website.  Packaged up nicely in a single long box.  Easy to handle, especially going up our somewhat small stairway.

AFTER

This is the completed bed frame.  We cut some 5/8" finished ply and over laid it on the bed rails as we did not want to use a box spring.  The ply gives even support to the mattress so that there isn't any "sagging" while you sleep.

FINISHED

So here's a pic of the bedroom with all the furniture in place.  The night stands, chest of draws and even the memory foam mattress were purchased from Sportsman's Guide.  Quality stuff for hunters and country folk at good prices.  Minimal handyman skills needed to assemble it all.

DINNING ROOM

As you can see, while the land at Red Hand is quite expansive, the house is rather small.  Mom and I must have looked like the Beverly Hillbillies towing this dining room furniture from the warehouse in Oneonta up to Plainfield.  Steady rain so I covered the trailer with a blue, waterproof tarp.  We unloaded it quickly and put it together in no time flat.  The place is really starting to take shape.  However it will always be a "guy" kinda place, more hunting lodge than anything else.  But mom's influence is giving it a real down home feel.  It's clean, comfortable, warm and inviting.  Only room left to do is the living room.  Of course the basement is a huge project that will come last.  We need to be able to stay there as that amount of work is daunting.
