    Hi Ken,
    I have been searching for detailed plans on how to build a Murphy bed. I am living in the Caribbean where we do not have ready and affordable access to kits from which you can bulid a Murphy bed. Anyhow, I believe if I get hold of a copy of plan details, including dimensions I should be able to do some makeshift and find materials to build myself a real good Murphy bed. Please send me a copy of the plans if you are now in possession of some.

    Ken, I am interested in what you think about bunk style murphy beds? I have 3 boys sharing one bedroom and can use all the space saving ideas I can find. Could your plans be used to simply “stack” one horizontal murphy style release on top of the other?

    Is this plan for a closet? I found tons of Murphy Beds to buy, in kits, and plans but all are for wall units with cabinets on either side. I just want a cheap DIY murphy bed to put into an existing closet. Will I be able to use your plans for this.

    Ken, do your instructions include instructions on purchasing the hardware at Lowes or Home Depot. The prefab kits for the hardware alone are being sold for $200-$300. Do you use piston or spring action hardware? thanks, maria

    Hi, I can’t afford the $300 hardware kits for Murphy Beds that everyone’s selling on the internet. It seems there must be plans available to build working beds that might substitute a little muscle for hydrolic lifts and springs. ANyone care to comment?
    Ken, I’d love to see your plans if you could please email them to me of post link. Thank you in advance.

    Hi Ken!

    I also do not see a link to Murphy Bed plans that are stated as posted (on June 2, 2008). When you have time, would you be so kind as to reply and send me the link or let me know where I might find them (or purchase them if it’s just the plans I’ve been looking for)?

    I’m looking to have a room with multiple functions as a sitting room/home office and guest room and this is crucial to the guest room portion of the plan. Would love [to find] plans for a full with side bookcases :-)

    Thanks ever so much in advance and thanks for taking the time to do this project and share it with others!

    – Jeanette

    I’d like to comment…
    The reason metal springs or hydraulic gas springs are included in all the advertised murphy bed mechanisms is because a quality innerspring mattress on any kind of supporting platform is TOO HEAVY to be comfortably and/or safely lifted by a normal person. Any plan that does not provide a method of counter-balancing the significant weight if a mattress on a platform is by definition not a murphy bed plan.

    I am building a small 16′x24′ hunting cabin for my son and three son-in laws. I too, need space for sleeping and lounging around. The Murphy bed seems ideal for what we need. Could you possibly send me some plans on how to build one. All I need is the bed to fold up out of the way. We’re looking at regular size beds. THANK YOU!!!

    Doing a murphy bed by med december – would appreciate plans.
    I have seen a sofa for the murphy bed such that the bed folds down over the sofa, after removing the sofa back cushions. Do you think your plans would be able to be modified?

    Please let me know if your plans would be ready soon.

    Must admit this does sound like false advertising. Lots of promises but not real data…May want to delete this site until you have something real to share. It is a waste to come here as it has been almost a year since last post and still no plans.

    Your site contains several links to existing plan sites however, your article indicates you have a free set of plans.

    I find it interesting that your links include an account ID of SID=AFT82 as if you are running a click for pay web site here.

    Folks, if your clicking on these links he might be geting paid even if you dont buy from the Rockler web site.

    I dont trust we will ever see a free set of plans from Mr Savage at this point.

    Ken, Make good on your promise and post a picture of your plans that we may print them out ourselves.

    Hi Ken,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to do all of the research for us interested in building our own wall beds. We purchased the plans from Rockler and were impressed by how reasonable the price was including shipping. Under $17.00 bucks. It does include a hardware list, specs for building your own queen or full vertical and/or horizontal wall bed. This saved us alot of time and planning. Can’t wait to let you know how it comes out! Keep up the good work! Bobbie

    Good morning, was excited to find your website. I’ve been researching the fold-down beds for a while, and really NEED to have one, but was “baffled” at why they ALL seem to be called “Murphy beds”, plus I don’t have the budget to buy a $300 kit just to build my own. I would LOVE it if you would be willing to share your free plans on how I can build my own. Thanks so much for your generosity!

    My grandfather bought out Joseph Bell of the Bell Wall Bed Company in San Francisco about 1919, keeping the company name but building beds according to his own designs, as well as servicing and repairing all wall beds, including the Murphy beds. My father finally closed the business in 1962 when there no market for wall beds, and no backers for his design for beds that would use standard mattresses, rather than the special mattresses built to fit the wall beds. I remember headboards on casters where the bed tipped straight up against the headboard, and the foot pivoting down on the bottom side of the mattress. There were also variation called “rollaway beds.” I would love to have a set of the plans for your designs.

    Why is there no date to your article? Makes it hard to know how far back you wrote this although the requests are current. I doubt I can wait for you to come up with your own design that won’t violate the patent rights. I did find these lovely ladies had a great idea. Saves money on the darn lift equipment. http://www.loriwallbeds.com/#!vstc0=gallery
    I think I’ll buy these plans for only $15.

    Good luck with your idea. I would love to see something like the http://www.flyingbeds.com/ They have this computer desk type that stays upright when you bring the bed down. Gosh I love that but I can’t find the plans and I’m no wood expert so I can’t figure out what parts would do that.

    The same question is repeatedly asked and goes back to 2007. Do you have the plans? Either this website is a waste of time or has been abandoned. I would obvious want a copy of the plans but looking at the other responses perhaps this site no longer provides this service.
