Build Diary 49 – Preparing for the rainy season

Shifting the places of work


We a short while ago created a substantial modify in our 2 places of work. Beforehand, they contained mismatching furniture, virtually no storage and ended up barely useful.  I use a great deal of handmade furniture from a range of professional artisans in Bali in my property, but I required one thing extra fashionable for the office.


I resolved to use the team from IKEA for Company to make my business office.  The final outcome is a big improve. It has definitely improved the performance of our 2 offices.


Multi-objective rooms


Way back at the commencing our develop journey, ahead of we even experienced the land, I began preparing the style and design of my foreseeable future dwelling. 1 factor I knew was that I did not want a committed “guest room”. I like my family members and good friends from abroad checking out me, but I knew that this style of space would remain unused most of the year. I didn’t want to squander this house.


In its place, I wanted rooms that I could use generally for a thing else …. AND then change into a bed room when required. The 2 places of work are in one more setting up just subsequent to our residence, so they make wonderful “spare rooms” as they give our friends a tiny privacy.


Resolving the challenge! 


My issue was how do I style a good business office house that can also be a spare bed room with no ruining the business? I pondered this for a though until finally I came across an ideal solution – a wall mattress! It will not acquire up lots of valuable floor house when I’m not working with it but the area can be applied to host my company.


The only dilemma was how to make it! I’d viewed them in in compact apartment spaces in big metropolitan areas, but they are certainly not prevalent in Bali. Wall bed kits were readily available on the net but the delivery prices were outrageous! I essential a superior way…..


Jack of all trades….


So, at the time once more, it was Pak Slamet to the rescue! We sat down and watched some YouTube tutorials on how to make a wall mattress. A several video clips later we devised a program. Then we commenced measuring the out there house in the place of work, and sketching out what I required. I decided to make it in just one of the workplaces only.


Pak Slamet went out in the morning to check how significantly the components would cost, and then started off earning the wall mattress that afternoon!
