Katian's Apartment: Mezzanine Bed

loft install 3
Originally uploaded by katian
My lab partner Adam came over one Saturday and helped me install this 4x8 platform for my yet be be acquired bed.

I was convinced that 2x3s and 5/8th inch ply would suffice for this project (esp as we always joke about over building everything) but am now a staunch 2x4 3/4inch overbuilding loyalist. screw sleek; sturdy sturdy sturdy!

With 2 cuts to the short end and a couple dozen screws this $46 install went up in about and hour. We made a little ladder from the scraps once neither of us could get up there.

It still needs a cross beam... and a mattress.

A bench at the foot of the bed should be no less
than 2" shorter than the mattress width. Attention in the sense that one has to keep several things in mind for proper installation considering cleaning aspect of the tiles. The goal is to achieve a cohesive and fresh look.
