Hm I like this, I actually do use a few of these blocks for various things around my yard. They are cheap.

middleofnowhere Maybe you could rent an airbed for the month? Or rent a regular bed & have the rental guys deal with getting it upstairs?

Liesje She WILL be pregnant, over 7 months. We had a futon frame but similar problem to the box spring...can't go up the stairs and make the corner (at least not a futon that's the size of a double bed).

onyx'girl I would get an airbed. They are fine for short term and some of the high end ones are comfortable if you don't have back problems. Futons aren't as comfortable as many of the air beds. Or you can get a futon frame, put a nice air mattress on the futon matress if you need the height.

nktigger99 You are 100% correct...she being that pregnant won't want to be sleeping right on the floor. Also the comfortable arm chair is a good idea, many times in my later months I slept sitting up due to the weight or position of baby/babies.

middleofnowhere I love Red Green. May your next project be the window awnings made from old car hoods....

Liesje ooo pallets, that might work.

MIL and FIL live two states away, we won't see them again before our friends arrive.

IKEA is 3 hours away, so just to go there an back is an expensive trip, gas-wise, plus like I said whatever furniture we add to this room temporarily needs to come back out, it won't remain a bedroom. We used to have one of their platform beds and it completely collapsed several times, never again!

There are already two large armchairs in the mancave. We'll keep one or both (if they both fit) for them to use. There's already a TV (well two right now!) in the mancave.

The reason I want the mattress off the floor is that our friends are also expecting and my girlfriend will be over 7 months pregnant when they are here. Now I don't have babies yet myself but I'm guessing at 7 months pregnant you don't want to be getting up off the floor all the time.

You'll probably laugh but....I actually got the milk crate idea from an episode of Red/Green many years ago.
