Building The Bedframe

Because of the limited amount of space, I decided to build the bed frame to sit above the dresser, so as to more efficiently use the space for 2 very large items. The bed will fit partially over the wheel well and the dresser will fit under the bed, in front of the wheel well (see my floorplan)

The bedframe
I started out building the frame with 2x4's as the legs and 1x4's as the side panels around the mattress. I finished the frame, but I couldn't get it into the bus. I forgot to measure before I built it. It fell apart during the tug-o-war that ensued.

2nd attempt from inside the bus
Scott calmed me down from my temper tantrum and suggested some supports that I had neglected to install in the first place. You'd think after all my years of building risers for the theater that I would have remembered something so simple, but I didn't, and Scott's suggestions saved the otherwise doomed bedframe. So I completed the frame, inside the bus this time.

Finished frame
The frame is finished and supports both the mattresses and my weight, even under a stress-test of shaking the frame to simulate road movement. SUCCESS!!!
