Thank you Balubalu.  It worked out great.  I did vary the design slightly by using two sheets of plywood.  The first sheet was cut to exact lenght of window seat.  This acts as a base.  The second sheet was cut into 3 peices.  I covered each of the 3 peices to make 3 separate seats within the window seat.  I enjoyed myself on this project.  Thanks again for the easy, quick and economic design.

Thank you thank you thank you.  I've been surfing all morning for some simple plans to build a window seat but I keep finding the same sets of instructions.  They either have you ripping off baseboards to attached 2x4s to the wall, or they advise you to first build a frame and partitions out of 2x4s as your base.  I rent where I am so I'm not really interested in major construction.  I just have a nice little niche under my bedroom window which has 3 feet of wall jutting out on both sides so it just seems the perfect place for a window seat.  Your solution is absolutley fabulous.  Thank you.  I'm off to Rona to buy my cinder blocks and particle board. I already have the fabric, foam and a multitude of throw pillows so I should be curled up reading a book in my new window seat by this evening.  I truly can't thank you enough for this very quick and simple solution that can travel with me when I move.  You're a very smart cookie.  :)

I love window seats since I was a small child.  I think there was one on a kid's tv show which I first saw.  Thanks!
