Maps, they aren't just for


When we constructed the bunkie, I’ll explain that later, we just had the shell built and I did what I could to finish the inside.

After insulating I needed to drywall or paneling for the walls.

Being cheap I recycled some old 3 ft x 4ft masonite (composite board) panels. This was functional if not attractive.

We had a large pile of old National Geographic and calendars. Rather than purchase wallpaper Anne used the maps and photos from this source.

I think it turned out well.

The term Bunkie comes from cottage country. To make extra bedrooms many small garages were converted to bunk houses. To conserve air it was shortened to Bunkie.

Sounds like a great idea--I could look at maps all day long. I love 'em!

Neat idea for the grape feeder; I'll have to try that.

Please do, it works really well.

Great idea! We always hated to throw away the National Geographics - such beautiful magazines - but what to do with them besides pile them in the basement?

They also make nice wrapping paper at Christmas and birthdays.
