The Auto-Rickshaw Bed Grand Reveal!

It's all finished! About six months ago we first had the idea to turn an auto-rickshaw into a bed. And last night Muffin slept in her auto-rickshaw bed for the first time.

It arrived in two pieces on two autos:

The pieces were unloaded and carried up the stairs:

Some parts that were supposed to be bolted were in actuality still welded, so we were stuck here for about half an hour:

But eventually it was all in Muffin's room and ready to reassemble:

She moved in her blankets and stuffed animals:

And then she was ready for bed:

The guys did a great job on the restoration and painting. You can see all our photos of the process here (auto shopping and restoration) and here (moving it inside).

"I want a second auto," were the words that greeted me after nap time this afternoon. Sorry kiddo, we love it and it was a fun project, but only one auto per lifetime.
