This murphy wall bed is a horizontal version to the Templeton. This customer choose to have a one 24” bookcase. We finished it in a dye/stain finish that we call Standard Cherry.

Here are some building pictures:

Mark -

Your comment cracks me up – don’t you usually have a murphy bed when you DON’T have room in your house? ;)

Chris, Are these difficult to build for a homeshop builder? I’ve often thought about buying one of the kits and doing this in one of my small guest bedrooms.

Wonderful design. I’d love to see what you used as the pivot. I’m on an iPad and can’t watch your videos(flash).
