Murphy Bed Challenge - concrete wall? Answered
I am moving into a former jeweler's office loft. Awesome! Not so awesome: everything was built for MAX security. This means these jewelers installed concrete on walls around their safes. This includes my new "bedroom" which is on the other side of a 10 foot safe.
I am attaching a pic with some notes on it to show you the challenge I am having. Since I wanted to use a murphy bed, I found this tutorial here: https://www.instructables.com/id/A-Murphy-Bed-Installed-Sideways/
However, I do not have a murphy bed frame with which to do this. My bed weighs about 100-ish lbs and is a queen sized memory foam bed. For the masonry/concrete issue, I am considering mounting the murphy bed to the floor, as shown in the aforementioned tutorial.
Here are my concerns:
1) How do I drill into concrete and masonry? What tools are best for this job?
2) Since I don't have a murphy bed frame, how do I properly build one?
3) Can I get shocks or springs going on this thing to make it easier to fold into the wall?
4) How can I get the folding-action just right? This room is SMALL, it only really is going to fit my bed.
