2. I thought the same. Maybe the designer the person who started

the company got the inspiration from a sleeper car.

4. I love these kinds of designs

The white sleeper sofa w/ retractable chaise was my fav. The pieces look like they'd fit right in with some of the micro-apartment designs being developed like Chang's 24 rooms in 330 square feet:

5. ONLY problem is these type furniture things are always in the modern style.

I do traditional style surroundings. Otherwise that is excellent.

10. Was also wondering about that.

I have a living room couch that converts to a bed, but it is extremely uncomfortable because the springs poke anyone trying to sleep on it. I have had to put a foam rubber layer over the springs.

11. The bed has those wooden slats that are "sprung" which makes it look loads more

comfortable than the "hide-a-bed" I have in my house. The matress is memory foam, which, I'm told, is very comfortable... I'd give it a try.

Also had to put a foam rubber layer over the springs.

15. That's really cool. The guest bedroom blew my mind haha.

Wondering about the cost though. I will be moving to NYC soon and will have to look into some of this stuff.

PS I love your sig.

16. Flagler College students in St. Augustine were trying to get a grant a year or so ago

in order to transform those storage containers into living spaces for low income and disabled people. They did make one storage container into a living unit for a paralyzed man as a demonstration of how it could be done. The unit turned out really well and the man was delighted with his new home.

I don't think they won the grant, however, because I have not heard anything about it since.

19. So could I.

I live in a mobile home which is about the same size as the top portion. I would love to have the bottom section.
