As we make plans to continue increasing our sleeping capacity for volunteers, we have run out of room on our own property. Our neighbors have graciously given us permission to creep onto their land with temporary facilities for the duration of the relief, recovery, and rebuilding efforts. We would like to build some more bunk houses on this property, but in order to do this, they will need to be small and potentially portable.
I’ve designed a rough draft of a 8 X 12 bunk house (the same size as many of our sheds) that would sleep 4 people. We could hoist this size structure onto a trailer if the need arose. I used the free Google Sketchup application to render a 3D model of something like I’m thinking about. You can download my 8 X 12 Bunk House Cabin from the 3D Warehouse. The model shows store bought bunk-beds, but we would probably want to build our own out of lumber. Let me know what you think. I’m open to suggestions.
Once we solidify the plans and get a material list together for these, I’ll post an update and perhaps we can have folks adopt a bunk house to fund the micro-projects.
