It's a typical 8 foot ceiling, and gives plenty of space to use the computer desk, or sit up straight on the bed without touching the ceiling.
That looks pretty good. I just used the metal support to save a bit of height, since I have a very thick mattress, and didn't want to be too crowded against the ceiling. As it is, I couldn't sit under it like you have yours set up. my side board is at my forehead height, so I need the desk aligned with the front edge. I am quite tall, though, so it might be easier to sit under if you need less head room.Do you have high ceilings, or is your bed just thin enough to make it work that way?
Do you have any more horizontal support on there that I can't see? I would expect it to be a bit wobbly without a wide board or diagonal supports to prevent it from racking.
I built it to fit a queen size mattress, but there is no reason you couldn't build it smaller.
