We goofed, we do that. Once in a while thankfully not very often but once in a while it does happen. And I hate that it was on this bed. This is a customer who has been waiting. We have three of them who have been very patient and we were so happy to have one done and be moving on to number two. Then we went and goofed it up. When we set this one up it looked wrong but we were in a hurry and didn't see it. But our customer did. That is the great thing about our blog. It lets our customers look over our shoulder and say that is not the way I thought it would be. We would much rather catch something at this point. Especially one like this bed that is being shipped. It would be much harder to fix the problem after we shipped it. Anyway here is the problem, the ladder should be on the end. It is so obvious of course it should be on the end, how could you use the drawer if the ladder was in front of it. I hate feeling stupid. But it does happen. So this week we are making a new headboard with the ladder opening in it. And working on our second bed that is waiting.

Here is something not related to our beds, and not a mistake really. One day this summer my husband decided to make me an oven outside. It was more of an experiment than a final project. He wanted to make sure it will all work out before he makes one out of more permanent materials. This one did work though. I made bread in it, flat bread not like a loaf of bread. We have made pizza and brownies. I love it. It does not make it hot in my house to bake. The one that we make for permanent will have to have fire brick, concrete block will eventually break from the heat. But it was a fun experiment. The kids had fun helping. The only one who was not all that excited was the little dog in the picture. Mack was pretty sure it was a new dog house for him right up until we started the fire. Look how longingly he is looking at it. It's a hard life for a little dog.
