This is a murphy wall bed that was completed in March 2011. It was one that had to have a lot of pre-planning. The customer, which is located out of state, wanted it built in. It was a not so typical configuration on the layout. The ceiling had a 45 degree turn about 7” down. We also had to come up with something to do with the window that wasn’t centered.

The customer was pretty handy and would install it and add the trim to give it that built in look. It turned out great. I did have to send a piece of crown (see some missing in pictures) because of a last minute change on how it would terminate at the top.

Here are some building pictures:

A custom design and fit like that is going the extra distance! Nice job!
