This Malaysian dad took the phrase “start them young” literally when he decided to build this awesome bunk bed in the shape of a Volkswagen Bus Type 2, or also known as Kombi, for his sons. The ‘bus’ is made entirely out of wood and it comes with a surfboard ladder and even doors for the lower deck!
According to Rich Samuel’s Facebook post, he spent 600 hours designing and building the bunk bed. The entire process took 8 months to complete as he had done the carpentry himself.
Other than the surfboard ladder, Samuel also included rich details such as headlamps, radiator strip, bumper, and even luggage handles to make the top deck look like luggage bags arranged on top of a real Kombi.
There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
