Sweaty Sheets: The Bed Frame Project

Poor timing for this project, being a very hot and humid day.

I haven’t had much recent luck with bed frames.  The one I had for over a decade (built to handle a waterbed), much neglected (the fasteners were slowly loosening); a bracket cracked, and eventually snapped off.

Once to get a proper basement in, then to add to the back (and presumably add the entry-way), and finally to expand the back full-width (where the laundry room resides now).
