Try as he might, Daniel couldn't stay away from DIY - or bedmaking - for long.
During our two-week stay-cation in Santa Margarita Lake, he designed and built bunk beds for the Airstream. This has totally transformed our life inside the trailer: Sophia, who sleeps on the top bunk, now has her own room, Barbara will have her own room when she comes to visit, and during the day, we have a whole new place to put stuff!
Thanks to the Santa Margarita Lake KOA for letting him borrow the drill!
