Planning the elevated sofa
The final living-room
zone slated for an upgrade this winter is our ancient futon. We got the
furniture used over a decade ago, and the mattress did a good job for
the first few years. By this point, though, no amount of flipping and
thumping keeps the cloth from sagging. Meanwhile, the bars are very
much evident underneath your bum.
The idea is to create a
raised day bed/sofa with space underneath for seed starting, coat
hanging, and general storage. Trailer ceilings are low and Mark is
tall, though, so the structure won't be very raised --- just 28.5
inches from floor to the beginning of the bed supports. Stay tuned for
details as the project progresses...and Huckleberry's notes on whether
a raised day bed is as acceptable as an ancient futon for cat napping.
