Hi Bill,You might be able to use 2x4 boards for the outer frame. If you do, just be mindful of the carriage bolt holes at the corners. I think you can probably make it work. It would definitely make under bed storage easier since you're cutting the legs shorter.As for the mattress, we still love ours from Tuft & Needle. It still springs back every morning and we don't have any valleys or peaks in it like we did with our traditional mattress. And because they are always the same price, you don't have to worry about coupons or holiday sales.Good luck!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing and I'm glad you found this helpful. :)
Looks great! Our dog claimed a spot under ours, too. :)

We actually carried all of the cut and sanded boards into the bedroom and assembled it there. It probably would not have fit down our hallway and through the doorway with the legs attached. If we ever have to move it out of the bedroom, we'll have to take the legs off. Luckily, it's only a matter of removing the 12 nuts and carriage bolts.
Thank you! Those are all great suggestions. Drawers just don't work for us because we already have enough storage for clothing and needed the space for larger items and bins. Our smallest dog, a beagle named Penny, loves sleeping underneath the bed. I love the LED lighting idea and will probably get some and see how it looks.We're not using a box spring. Mattress Firm took them away when they picked up the mattresses, and we were happy to see them go. This frame is just for our Tuft & Needle foam mattress.
Thanks! It was my first time using TinkerCAD and it was really easy. I'd definitely use it again.
