Build Diary 49 – Preparing for the rainy season

Changing the offices


We a short while ago made a massive alter in our 2 places of work. Beforehand, they contained mismatching household furniture, practically no storage and have been scarcely functional.  I use a great deal of handmade furniture from a wide variety of expert artisans in Bali in my house, but I wished something more modern for the place of work.


I resolved to use the crew from IKEA for Enterprise to make my business.  The final outcome is a substantial up grade. It has definitely improved the performance of our 2 workplaces.


Multi-goal rooms


Way back at the commencing our build journey, before we even had the land, I started out organizing the design of my long term property. One point I knew was that I did not want a devoted “guest room”. I really like my family and pals from overseas traveling to me, but I realized that this type of area would continue to be unused most of the yr. I did not want to squander this house.


Instead, I wanted rooms that I could use largely for one thing else …. AND then convert into a bed room when necessary. The 2 workplaces are in one more developing just upcoming to our household, so they make wonderful “spare rooms” as they give our attendees a small privateness.


Resolving the challenge! 


My issue was how do I layout a good office environment place that can also be a spare bedroom without ruining the office environment? I pondered this for a although until I came throughout an suitable answer – a wall mattress! It will not choose up heaps of worthwhile floor house when I’m not utilizing it but the room can be made use of to host my guests.


The only dilemma was how to make it! I’d noticed them in in modest condominium areas in large metropolitan areas, but they are undoubtedly not prevalent in Bali. Wall mattress kits were being accessible on the net but the shipping and delivery expenses ended up outrageous! I desired a improved way…..


Jack of all trades….


So, after once again, it was Pak Slamet to the rescue! We sat down and viewed some YouTube tutorials on how to make a wall mattress. A number of videos afterwards we devised a system. Then we started out measuring the obtainable room in the business office, and sketching out what I wished. I determined to make it in a person of the places of work only.


Pak Slamet went out in the early morning to look at how considerably the supplies would expense, and then begun producing the wall mattress that afternoon!
