I usually don’t go too far afield from iron beds in the majority of my blogging. And if you take into consideration that there actually is an bed in this “log cabin” on wheels, then I guess I’m still on track.
I just couldn’t pass up sharing this particular photo a client emailed me last week. They’re from Wyoming and bought a couple of beautiful beds from me a few years ago. They are extremely nice people and we share a common love for “log cabins” and just about everything “old”. Beds were what initially brought us together. But it’s been the fun communication back and forth of sharing things that put a smile on your face. They had occasion to take a trip and noticed this “one of a kind” log cabin motor home. I love old vintage trucks and also Log Cabins. Having restored a couple of older vintage pick-ups and having built a couple of log cabins for our family in Big Bear Ca., the marriage of those two things in this photo really put a smile on my face. Then to find out it had a twin size bed set up inside, was a real treat. Unfortunately my friends were only able to see through the window, but couldn’t get a photo of the bed. They did mention when they returned from their trip, on the same route as that took them past this truck, ….. it was gone.
Another unique thing, other than the twin size bed, was a pot-belly stove. If you look close, you can see the chimney coming out of the roof toward the rear of the cabin.
After seeing this photo, I’m now on a quest to find a good vintage “flat bed” pick-up that I can build a similar “log cabin” on. It would be a fun “guest house” to set along side our warehouse/barn that houses all our beds.
I’ll keep you posted on the progress of this latest “project”. I’ve always found projects of this nature to be very therapeutic. It will be fun picking an bed to grace the interior, once I get the log home built.
I hope you’ve found this blog informative . I invite you to revisit my website

I also invite you to take a look at our company Face Book page for multiple photo albums on Custom Finishes, Canopy Conversions and a comprehensive “Before & After” King Conversions album.
