Bob and I have been building whimisical creations for a few years now. The first incarnation of The Red Couch was a human powered paddlewheel boat. We have successfully travelled the Red Couch paddlewheel boat ( around to many different events, and places. Over the course of the past year, we enjoyed Maker Faire, Lake Sonoma, Camp Tipsy, Trashtastic Boatacular, Clearlake, and others. 

In the next few weeks, we are going to transform the Red Couch into a Handcar for the Wunderkammer: Great Sonoma County Handcar Races Shortly thereafter we want to take the Red Couch Railcar up to the Willits Steam Carnivale: . 

Funds raised will purchase square steel tubing, steel wheels, welding supplies, tools, and other essentials for making a sturdy undercarriage for the couch that is propelled by 2 people pedaling. We hope to use as much recycled bike parts as possible, but there will be costs associated with all the building, and a bit for traveling.
