Jean. If it needs to be altered could you prop the mattress up at the far side to allow access?

There are cupboards above the far side and also above the foot of the bed (and it's above a garage so high to start with). If I have to do any alterations I'll have to burrow under the mattress - maybe never to be seen again!

And that's assuming I can get it back in again....

I can go nowhere till I shift the mattress from off the drop down. Not looking forward to it. Tho I should get out there instead of talking about it!

And it's done!

I can't believe how easy it was (only relatively speaking, mind you!) compared with getting it out. I was beginning to think they must put the mattress in before they put on the roof!!

I was also afraid the froli base might move when I was getting the mattress on as it doesn't quite fill the space (being a French bed shape) but all worked OK.

I'd taken down the bed curtain so it didn't get caught - I think I'll just leave that off.

Oops, I've just noticed my toplight fully open - had to do that to get it up the corridor.

I haven't actually lain on it yet - the plumber who was fixing a leak in the house came looking for me - but kneeling on it I think it's going to be very comfortable.

And while on the subject, does anyone have an easy way to make up one of these beds (high, restricted on 3.5 sides, n cupboards above?) I'm always exhausted by the task and use my forehead on the cupboard doors to leverage the mattress while tucking the fitted sheet under. I'm not going to get any younger!

One of the reasons we said no more French beds but only a central walk round bed. Thats if we ever buy again Jean.
