New house, living in loft, need furniture, help?

I'm moving into a new house. Decided to move into the loft. Basically, it's the V of the roof, like an attic. I can just barely stand in the center, but I expect to do little more in there than sleep, use the computer (at a desk, IE sitting), and poo (there's a bathroom, weird, huh?). I can use an air mattress, so that's easy. Now I just need ideas for a cheap desk (I'd put the computer on the floor, but I sit for hours, because I'm a lazy-ass and a nerd, so it's gotta be comfy) and a way to store clothes (lotsa shirts, socks, some pants, regular stuff) without big-ass bulky dressers. Everything has gotta fit in an attic-style hole in the ceiling and go up a ladder. Ideas?

For a desk, get a big sheet of ply (as big as will go through the hatch, anyway), and fix it with hinges to the slope. Fasten the front edge to the roof with cables or cords. When you're done with the desk, lift it up against the roof, latch in place. For the shirts, string a cord tightly along one side of your roof, tacked to the roof every foot or two. String another cord along the roof, about 18 inches, 2 feet further down, tacked to the roof less often. Put the shirts on hangers on the top cord, tuck them behind the lower cord.

Oh, and for your chair, try this.
Check out the cardboard box desk ible. For the clothes, how about milk crates? Or more boxes...

Thanks for the suggestions. I can probably scope out some desks at yardsales and such. A door is probably too big to fit up there. It's got a little "desk" built into the wall, but it's probably for very small children. It's tiny. I have a shitton of clothes. Mostly shirts. Any suggestions here?
That must be a new metric measurement, haven't heard that one before. Haha.

The question is: Metric shitton or cubic shitton?
Hahhahaha, that is hilarious! Added new word to my dictionary*
