By day, this unit is a comfortable sofa. At night, it can be converted quickly into a full-size futon bed. It is equally at home in a house where it can double as a bed for the occasional visitor, or in a small apartment where it makes the most of the available space. As a bed, it accommodates a standard futon mattress (150 cm wide x 188 cm long) and as a sofa, measures 89 cm deep x 196 cm long and 81 cm high.
This unit's versatility frees up space as you can use it in a den, reading or sitting room when you do not have overnight guests and also avoids the handling, inconvenience and storage involved in setting up a camp or inflatable bed.
The plans for this project detail all you need to know to build the futon bed, and come with a complete materials list, step-by-step instructions and illustrations.
