Deep window seat that can expand into a twin bed
I am trying to figure out a seating/ extrabed solution for a little reading nook in my daughter's room. It is just about 40 inches wide and about 6ft deep. One long wall has a nice window and the other will have shelves for books. I would like to build a custom window seat/ bench here that can expand to a sturdy bed. I was thinking the seat can be half as deep(3ft) and you could pull out the bed platform/ frame part to make it 6ft twin bed. The pull out part would have legs to help make the bed stable. Maybe the platform part will have piano hinges and fold closed and open. Has anyone seen plans like this or has any advice for me? I would just use thick futon type mattress.
