Kit House Bed

EngineHouse designed this bed to celebrate the scale and beauty of the former fir rafters, drawing materials from a small kit house built in the 1960s. The client who originally commission this design grew up vacationing in the kit house, and this bed helps preserve this family’s connection to the past while seeking to minimize environmental impact.

While the bed was originally designed with a client in mind, this bed is available by special order and in various sizes.

This originally designed bed was made from Reclaimed Douglas fir rafters, western red cedar, and steel. The Kit House Bed is available by special order in additional wood species and sizes. Shown in Queen: 68”Wx86”Lx48”H.

About this Maker

EngineHouse

Founded in the engine room of a decommissioned Wilkinsburg fire station, EngineHouse began in 2011 as the creative ambition of colleagues Adam Lackett and Kellen Fenaughty. The partners moved to Pittsburgh in 2003 to attend Carnegie Mellon’s School of Architecture and quickly fell in love with the city’s gritty character and architectural potential. After forays in the fields of architecture, construction, landscape design, and furniture making, they formed EngineHouse as a design-build practice with a holistic approach to the construction process. The group, now bolstered by Pittsburgh native and partner, Ian English, shares a passion for hard work, a love for honest materials, and a commitment to durable, long-lasting investments in local infrastructure.
