Looking for an inexpensive bed, I thought I'd try this one out. Assuming the frame would be constructed of cheap wood, i was prepared to reinforce it. The bed was delivered in two days and was pleasantly heavy to haul upstairs. Took 20 min to assemble the bed and I was thoroughly pleased with the quality. It is Awesome. I don't care for box springs, so i turned the bed into a platform bed by adding 10 1"x4"s and 3- two legged U shaped support bars, with a beams across bottom that rest on the floor for weight support. The Bed never makes a creek and it is almost impossible to remove myself from come the morning.
