That is the most friggin’ brilliant solution to more headroom in a Tumbleweed house: DORMERS. They don’t raise the overall height to interfere with bridge clearance, nor make the body any wider, but you get a more squared off and less claustrophobic sleep space. A part of me would still love to have a Tumbleweed, and I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this.
I’d still need some tansu drawers to get up there, though. Even if I could get myself up there with only my arms, I’d probably kill myself trying to get back down while still half-asleep.
There’s a chance I might get a new computer in February, and whether I do or don’t, it was good motivation to get my desk cleaned up. This is the tidiest it’s been since the first week it was installed, probably.
This is half of the “walk-in” closet in my bedroom (you literally take one step in, and there were rods to either side.) One rod and shelf was taken out and replaced with an assortment of Ikea parts. The shelves and brackets are used as intended, but the wire shelves to the right are supposed to be kitchen spice shelves. The desk itself is trimmed down from a DIY desktop that was marked down to $10 in the as-is section in Charlotte, and is held up by 1x2 cleats screwed into the wall studs. It’s been working out pretty awesomely, and I don’t have a big-ass desk taking up real estate in my actual bedroom.
Technically, the show turns 24 on the 24th of November this year, but its birthday is always celebrated annually on the day of its premiere, Thanksgiving.
So Happy Anniversary, MST3k, and may your marathons begin!
Celebrate, won’t you?
E pluribus join us. *salutes*
