    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Does any one have any information on where I can buy one or instructions on how to build one?

    Wait, you smell that?

    Don't ever buy assedembly required garbage from Ikea or any other stylish furniture stores. They are junk that would squeak after a few months.

    Not in my experience. Had an IKEA bed for a good 6 years, which was assembled and disassembled at least 10 times for various moves. Gave it to the sis, and it is still pretty solid for the $250 or so I paid for it. You probably just need to learn how to use an allen wrench and follow assembly instructions.

    Maybe building wouldn't be such a bad idea after all.

    Not sure if OP is still around. Some basic suggestions:

    Don't buy a name brand mattress. They are only one-sided due to private equity owners realizing they could shorten the life of them by (a) sewing in a mattress topper that would die sooner (b) only including one side.

    I'd suggest going with a natural Talalay latex mattress from a local latex manufacturer. They basically cut it to size.

    Alternatively, you can order Sleep Innovations on Amazon which is basically a foam mattress that is pretty nice and inexpensive. Or Ikea mattresses which aren't terrible.

    If you go with a foam mattress you will need a solid bottom vs a slat bottom.
