Post Beds!  Reply with quote
Instead of us trying to get beds then bringing them in and trying to fit them through all the doors and generally going through hell, why don't we just build the beds right into the rooms?

Like, if we're using stone or brick or something, we just make a platform right in the room, with just enough room for two people (to make room for couples or people just having fun  Very Happy ). Then put a mattress on top of it and some blankets and voila! We could also build in shelves or spots to store things, like leave out bricks for a small space, strengthen it with metal and wood, and make a kinda cabinet thing.

That could work.  My only comment is that if we build the bed into the building we can't move it around.

What about hammock ? Or japaneze style bedding (mattress directly on the floor)
those are easy to move around

The Japanese had some amazing things. The low tables, pillows, beds on the floor, etc. I'm not sure about the paper walls (the best thing about getting frisky is usually the vocals!), but otherwise, I think we should go for simplicity. We had built-in desks, closets, and shelves in the dorms I was in the last year and it drove me *insane*. However, if we can devise a way to make these things both built in and movable, that'd be fine. (See the situationist literature at bopsecrets.org for some idea what I'm talking about, vaguely).

I currently sleep with my mattress directly on my floor and that works fine my only concern though is if our rooms flood.

I like sleeping with my mattress on the floor, too. Hammocks would work wonderfully, except if there's two people or even three!  Embarassed And I know I personally would never survive on a hammock, I already roll off enough  Embarassed

The problem is, how are we going to build the rooms for the beds? We need the doors wide enough to get bed frames through if we're going to use that, or we're going to have to build the platforms  if we decide to do that...so we have to figure out how we're going to build all the rooms Sad

I think all standard beds are build to fit though the average door. Other wise how would they get into everyones houses.  Under any circumstances we can just say that what ever you bring to sleep on needs to be able to fit though a 7' tall door.

Most beds can fit through any door a human can, either assembled or disassembled.  I don't think we should build right into the walls.

Of course, I for one will be sleeping in a hammock, which may or may not be located high above the floor, accessible only by ladder... Very Happy
