I was tossing around the idea of replacing my dilapidated “bed” with something new. Discussing the ideas around the station one of the guys came up with an idea of using a futon frame. I looked into the possibility and came up with a wall hugger style of frame that needs zero clearance to convert to a bed. There would be a weight savings with this application since the guy who installed his custom bed used 2X4’s for the frame. I would think that with minor alterations to a basic style frame integrated to a raised platform; this could be a feasible option. I looked through the forums and did not find any applications of this type for a bed. I could use a new sofa bed or an original groucho, but I only have a limited space to work with. Of course the wife will need some sort of comfort level with any application. Any ideas, thoughts or has any one done this sort of conversion?
