The new beds were delivered this morning. The fellows came within the time frame the company arranged, and two very nice fellows brought in the beds and assembled them. It took them the better part of 45 minutes, and they were experienced at the job.
I love the beds, they are more comfortable than the box springs we had, and the drawers are large and operate smoothly. Attila had an afternoon nap on his new bed, and said the mattress feels just a little bit firmer than it was before. I will be trying out my bed tonight, and I am really looking forward to it.
The beds are solid pine wood, with the exception of the mattress support boards, which are a very heavy, solid composite. Attila says the beds are made out of Southern Pine, he can tell by the aroma of the pine. He spent a decade working with various types of wood, and he is familiar with this type of pine. The beds were manufactured in Chesley, Ontario; we always try to buy locally manufactured items whenever it is practical.
The additional storage space under the bed will make a very big difference in this tiny house. I plan on keeping my off-season clothing in these drawers. It isn’t practical to keep clothing I wear daily in the bedroom, as Attila sleeps in there all day when he is working nights, and I won’t go in because I don’t want to disturb his rest. I keep my daily clothes in the spare bedroom, where I have access to them all day long.

“Though the vicious can sometimes pour affliction upon the good, their power is transient and their punishment certain; and that innocence, though oppressed by injustice, shall, supported by patience, finally triumph over misfortune!”
