We are building a Murphy bed with extra height. We used to sleep on a storage bed (home made too) and it was extra tall to fit a lot of stuff below. So we got used to sleep like 2 feet above the floor, which is nice.
-We have built shelves in behind the bed.
-We made a "head-board" for back rest when reading in the bed. We can flip down this board to access the storage room behind.
-We have made it 2 feet tall.
Let me know what you think :) It still needs some paint - expecially inside the shelving unit.
