Making Sleeping Space

As I previously mentioned, our boat isn’t the typical live aboard type boat.  We don’t have actual separate cabins.  The V-Berth (bed at the front of the  boat) has a curtain to pull across, and the aft berth has a spot which could have a curtain (I need to make one) but really, what we like about our boat is the open concept.  That being said, I originally had the girls sharing the aft berth but with the arguments I’m already getting I know this is not going to be a sustainable solution.  Therefore we are going to need to add a sleeping space.  SpontaneoUs currently has two chairs on the starboard side.  Which is fine, but having a bench seat here would 1. make a spot for someone to sleep, 2. add more storage.

So, We have pulled out the chairs, Doug has built a frame for the bench and I have hired my talented Aunt to recover some foam for me.

Here is the before and after pics.

Here is Miss K and Mr S sitting in the former chairs.

I am so happy with this reno.  I think it will work out so well for our family!

Thanks for following.
