Tara and I built this bed over multiple weekends, between vacationing, gardening, and cleaning up the yard from a massive windstorm. We used unplaned cedar from a local woodlot for the posts so had to adjust the spacing. Also built up our own frame for our Ikea rubber mattress using 2x2's we ripped. The frame is modular with large lag bolts holding the frame to the footboard and carriage bolts for the frame/headboard connection. Which is good because the bed is HEAVY and the frame needed to be hauled up the back deck by rope and 3 people. Thank you so much for the design and inspiration, Ana and community!
