Hello everyone, We decided we wanted a bed that pulled out of the floor. A bed is only used for one purpose and that is for sleeping. We figured that since that the bed is only used for this one purpose that why not keep it away during the day when not in use and conserve loads of space. Today we built a raised floor for the bed to be pulled out like a big drawer. We also built the slat frame with wheels for the mattress to rest on.
