Bamboo beds are here.

They said it would be three and a half weeks. And today, right on schedule, the bamboo furniture guys came to deliver our beds. They made a delightful din hammering them together with mallets made of bamboo.

These fellows assembled the beds using these tools, plus a machete:

No Ikea hex wrenches here!

The finished product is quite impressive. Here are the bunk beds:

It feels very nice to see actual beds in our rooms instead of just foam mattresses on the floors. Sora and I have a four-poster canopied bed. Ezekiel has the same in his room, which will also be a guest room when we have visitors. Here’s Hosanna visiting his room right now:

The frames are perfect for the young monkeys who will be inhabiting them:

Now we just need to figure out which kids sleep on which bunks…

Many thanks to Ate Elsa from the birth center who helped us place our order for this furniture, serving as a translator and ironing out a few snags along the way.
