Becky, otherwise known as Miss H from Derby, called us in because the bedroom (Photo 1) was pretty useless as a sleeping space. As you can see it was being used to deposit various items that hadn’t been allocated a home! It was small and as a result she couldn’t get a full-size bed in there with any kind of storage at all. The question was – could we fit a cabin bed with drawers for added storage? It would have to be built to specific measurements and there was a bit of “grunt” work involved. We’ll get onto that later……
Originally Miss H got the idea for the cabin bed with drawers after an internet search took her to our modest little web site. After looking at the case studies of the Small Box Room Cabin Bed and the Cabin Bedroom Fitted Furniture on our web site she realised what would be possible in her small bedroom. She was able to easily contact us through our “Contact Us ” page with the basic details of her requirements.
We got back in touch with her and started the process. It was all very straight forward and after a few emails with photos and dimensions flying through the ether we came up with the CAD image – see below:- Becky and her fella agreed we should take it on and we duly arrived in Derby with our cold chisel and lump hammer and got to work.

“A Serious Brick Bulkhead – Demolition Required”
As bulkheads go this is the Arnold Schwarzyneg I mean Schwotsineg oh you know the big hard Mr Universe film star guy who used to be in charge of California!! That’s it Arnold Schwarzenegger. Look at Photo 1 and you can see it’s a big bulkhead, we start to dismantle it and it’s made of brick!! Actually not many are, anyway the bigger they are the harder they fall and this was no exception. I can vouch for that with the bruise on my shin after a brick fell on it.
