Even more impressive, the construction project cost just $800 in supplies and only took up roughly 20 inches — less than two feet — of floor space because he fit it into the wall of the spare bedroom. "It makes the room much larger than it would be with regular furniture," he said of his finished product, which featured a full mattress on top
