Study Beds allow you to turn any extra bedroom into a study and back into a bedroom in seconds. What’s especially clever about the design is nothing on the desk’s surface has to be moved or even disrupted when it lowers and reveals the flip down bed. Available in single and double models. Now for the downside….looks like they’re only available in the UK, and they’re not inexpensive either. BUT the website does provide some tech specs, close-up pics of its construction and videos of the bed in action. All this, of course, leads me to wonder if it could be DIYable. Latches, pulls and some fancy gas springs….hmmm.
They made a bed/desk similar to this on the show ‘Tiny House Nation’ on the FYI channel.
My husband can build these.
@Joni , can you send me your email address for this so??
The hendges are the expense! 200.00 per hendge set. We were thinking of building 2 but that is the kicker, the hendges. You could probably buy it for less than you can make for that reason alone. These are custom hendges that you can not go to your local Lowes and pick up.
I’ve seen a similar bed called The Tale by FlyingBeds.com retailing for ca. $3650, with less framework so yo can see some more details about the ledges.
