Better Renovations: Sleeping Quarters

Green theories: reduce, reuse, recycle.

That's the name of the game at Better Farm, so scouring rural New York's Craigslist is an integral part of renovating this place. The universe is responding to the work going on in Redwood a thousandfold. Why else would we have found not one, not two, but 60 bunkbeds?!:

Bunk Beds for camp, cottage or home. Heavy all steel angle iron construction with head and foot boards and stainless steel springs. Just add a mattress!! $20 single, $35 for set of bunks. 60 available. Very sturdy and durable. Call 315-778-0834, leave message.

The nice guy in charge of all this is holding all requested sets (we actually don't need all 60) until we get up there around Memorial Day for the first round of major house renovations. Soon there will be room for all of us! Let us know if you've got some twin or twin extra-long mattresses we could use...
