Building a tall bed
I need to build a bed with about 2 feet of storage underneath it so I can put my things in boxes and sublet my room! I am attempting to do this on the cheap, but also want the bed to be sturdy enough to jump on! My idea is to have four 6x6 bedposts and construct the frame out of 2x6s with a 2x4 running lengthwise and also one running across on the bottom for added support. And possibly brackets to help reinforce the legs. I don't have a box spring and am not sure whether use plywood sheets or fence boards for the platform.
Any thoughts on this plan? Does it sound sturdy?
Also, I am trying to find a way to transport lumber from the building supply store I will buy it from to my house. If you live in SF and have a truck, I will pay you and make you lunch if you help me out! Let me know!
