Awesome Homemade Murphy Bed (at Blue Moon Rising in Maryland)

     I thought you'd love this one, and it was sent by Brian Oxford, who works at a newly developed center/camp/compound in sustainability and education in McHenry, Maryland, called "Blue Moon Rising". This place looks GREAT and I'm eager to see what they have in store down the road. They have their initial open house THIS SUMMER- and you can find out more about it, and them at....

This place is the dream/brainchild of  Lisa M. Jan- who comes across as instantly likeable in the video link below.....

Their first cabin/tiny house (they're dubbing their cabins "Waldens") has already been set in place, and more are in the works. All in all, there will be fourteen tiny houses on the property. The one housing this unique murphy bed is also shown below....I love how the housing/space for the stored murphy bed is "bumped out" to the exterior of the structure.

I might be working with them on a collaboration project down the road as well, and heck, might eventually want to teach a workshop down there- who knows.....

More photos below, and check out their great video too on their rental cabins.... VIDEO HERE

  1. The bed looks like a great bit of design, but I also like the care with the external timber details too. Cover battens for the vertical cladding, the cover strip beneath the window to visually balance the coloured frame and the tidy shingles on the bay.

    Looks like a careful and lovingly crafted building.
