One important part of this whole process is turning the back of a truck into a livable, comfortable space. I have a number of plans and ideas on how to do that, and I'm going to chronicle my attempts at turning them into realities in this "Home Improvement" series. This one is a super basic one, but hey, baby steps. If I plan on living in this thing, I'll need a place to sleep, naturally. So I wandered over to Craigslist, found the sketchiest new mattress and box spring set I could find, and placed an order. Notice the word "new", that's super important, because I'm not in the mood for a case of bed bugs or crabs or whatever else you can catch from a used mattress.
Anyway, all I actually did to make this a reality was the following:
- Pick up the bed.
- Remove the plastic from the bed.
- Find desired location for bed.
- Place bed in desired location.
- Make bed.
- Tie it down with the rope that I mentioned in a previous post.
Voila! I now have a bed.
