I Want to Put Bunkbeds on My Enclosed Back Patio

Hi Neighbors!

I am seriously wanting to turn our enclosed back patio into a spare bedroom. Sort of a dream right now, but you never know. I personally think Bunk beds would work best. When we have company I would probably move my 2 boys out there so someone could have their room and bathroom. Anyway, I checked, one of the Cymax Store, for a bunkbed clearance. While searching I found the Canwood Alpine II Twin over Full Bunk Bed in Espresso. I like the design of this one, along with the price! It would fit in well and has the wood drawers for under the bed. More storage!

I also considered the option of a futon bunk. Both of my boys are getting old enough that they just might prefer sharing the larger futon and allowing someone else to sleep on the top bunk. You just never know for sure with boys. One minute they love a bunk bed and the next they are outgrowing it. You know they stop liking sleeping on the top bunk. I like the Atlantic Furniture Columbia Twin Over Futon Bunk Bed in Caramel Latte. This is a nice option because they can use the futon during the day to sit on and read books or study even if we didn't have guests.

Last I checked on bunk beds with a trundle. I still can't decide for sure. I found the Lea Elite Classics Bunk Bed in Medium Brown Cherry. I really liked this one because of the dark wood and it looked masculine enough for boys. It is also available in twin over full or full over full. Then with the trundle bed available we would have plenty of room for guests. Possibly even the guests could have that room instead of moving the boys. Hmmm. This one is looking better and better.

What do my neighbors think? Which one do you like best? Right now this is just something I would like to do in the future. At this point the boys have to use sleeping bags when someone visits. I think I might have to do some more looking into this. Thanks for your thoughts!

See you next time At the Fence!

I like the last one. I've been looking too and want the full size on the bottom. I also like the ones with actual stair steps to the top bunk.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
