What we are doing in the shop for December 09, 2009. The 41 school bookcases are being delivered this morning by Paul and Donald. When they get back they’ll work on some drawers for three different bed pedestals. I’ll be working most of the day on a loft bed.

This is the installation of the 17 beds in the Chi Omega house. These were installed in the third floor attic rooms. It all went fairly smooth.

I tried to keep the same style. I lowered the height of the headboard and built a couple bookcases for each level....
