ANOTHER look at our ceiling hanging/space saving micro-living chamber/art bunk

"The Krunk Bunk" a legless bunk/sleeping chamber designed by Derek "Deek" Diedricksen
      Here's another newer shot of "The Krunk Bunk"- which you'll get a full tour of in the next Make Magazine edition of "Tiny Yellow House" (very soon). This is ONE of TWO micro-shelters we built in our hands-on tiny house/building workshop last month (a sold out session with 22 people- so we WILL do another one).This ceiling situated sleeper was built for around $100 or so, and is outfitted/decked out with a bunch of IKEA accessories, and several salvaged/recycled items as well.
    Anyway, "The Krunk Bunk" is designed as legless sleeping quarters for college students, those with high-ceilinged dwellings, and for those just looking for a very unique sleep space. I've been using it as a place to hang out and edit/complete new sketches for the new expanded edition of my book "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" but now that the books done (and since I have TOO many things I've build taking up space in my small home) this bed/unit will most likely be for sale SOON on (unless anyone wants to make an advance offer)- kidcedar at gmail dot com.

Naturally, since eating Ramen Noodles isn't something I want to do for life, the book link is below. Thanks in advance to anyone who might pick up a pre-order/reserve copy!
