The Cross House
Today, Justin and I began to rewire the Sewing Room.
I drew on the north wall where I wanted switches and sconces to go over the bed.
Then Justin said: “Wasn’t there a Murphy bed on this wall once? Isn’t that stored on the third floor? If so, why not put it back?”
Egads! What a brilliant idea!
They make Murphy bed inserts, and I should be able to find a frame which fits the dimensions of the cabinet. I hope!
We wired two wall switches in the plaster wall, which will control overhead spots I will install in the “roof” of the cabinet. I will have to measure to see if a queen or full matress will fit.
When the sewing room is restored, I plan to find a roommate to help offset the expense of the house. The room will come furnished.
I am soooooooooooo excited about this! What a thrill to reinstate a lost historic feature of the house, and return it to its original use!
