Modern Beds and Materials

This bed can be made to any height/width you want….mine is about 12 inches off the ground not including the mattress so as not to loose too much area use due to the angle of the tipi.  This gets me off the ground and able to get up due to arthritis and knee surgeries.  No post go above because of the tipi cover or liner touching.  The higher you get the more room you loose due to the angles of the liner/cover coming over you.  Later the bed was stained a dark brown to protect the wood.
