We didn't have a bed. We were all sleeping on the floor, no air mattress or anything like that, just a couple of sleeping bags on the floor. So, rather than continue to do that, I decided that I should build a bed.
It's nothing fancy, just some utility grade 2X4s, some nails and a whole lot of determination. (I always say that what I lack in skill I make up for in determination!) I think it turned out quite well. I am basing that on the fact that it hasn't collapsed yet!
The dogs like it. They like it a lot.

I thought about building an elevated bed with lots of storage room underneath but with three blind dogs I knew I would have to also build a barrier around it to prevent them from falling off (adult sized crib?!) and of course a set of stairs for them to be able to get on the bed. Seemed like too much to tackle so I kept it simple.
That open space underneath is more popular than I ever imagined it would be.
