2551 Twin bed mod

I got this idea from Bob Andersen but others here may have done it, as well.  I have not liked the fact that the twin bed mattresses overlap the frame the mattresses rest upon.  I also found it difficult to undo the entire frame under the longer bed to get at the pump.  Further, the frames are resting on flimsy supports.  So, new frames of higher grade material and 2 and a quarter inch wider with rounded edges.  Also made separate hinged opening in the long bed frame to get at the pump without having to take the whole thing off.  Some adjustment had to be made so the new wider frame did not bump into the "closet" on the end of the shorter bed when flipping the bed up. Redid the supports and made them firmer. Last, we opened a panel beneath the short bed and made a door out of the existing wood so we could store dirty clothes in there until we found a laundromat.  .
