This is one of the biggest projects that I’ve completed. It consists of two rooms worth of murphy beds. A total of four murphy beds, four sofas, and five standard bookcases. Each bed also as two inset bookcases each so really that is a total of 13 bookcases. One of the pictures show the beds that go in the second room without being finished. For some reason I didn’t have a finished picture of that room.

The Face Style
The face I call the Jordan Murphy Bed, because that is what the mitered door molding is called. Each bed has four large door panels that are a mitered raised panel design.

The Standard Bookcases
These are a little different normal Murphy Bed Bookcase. The base comes out deeper than the overall bed cabinet and then I back set the upper section. Each bookcase has a pull out tray that can be used for drinks with either the bed down of using the sofa.

Inset Bookcases
These are a speciality bookcases. They are needed to provide some “dead space” for the sofa arms. To utilize that dead space, I developed these inset bookcase that turn inward to provide extra pace. The bottom shelf of each inset bookcase is removable and there is an electrical outlet for cell phones or alarm clocks.

We built the sofa with stained arms instead of our normal upholstered arms.

To make sure it made it to it’s destination on time and without incident we took it our self instead of a freight line. The destination was 1700 miles away outside San Diego, CA. One of our guys drove there in a packed 20’ Uhaul and flew back.

Nice looking set of beds. I like the bookcase built into the bed.
