Living in the Pacific Northwest is awesome! It’s also very damp…

We’ve been cautious about moisture issues in our small space and wanted to increase airflow under the bed in the loft since it’s been rumored other tiny housers have encountered mold under their mattresses. Moisture from body heat gets trapped underneath causing the growth. Originally, we had our super thick pillow-top mattress on simple Ikea bed slats, but Tomas had a nifty idea to raise the bed by making a few modifications.

We went to Home Depot and had a few cedar boards cut to match the length of the slats, and he screwed the pieces together to make a nice “bed frame.” We also replaced the uber-thick mattress with a thinner one that we like better.
