The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company plans that we bought about four years ago suggested making a bed out of foam for the loft. The primary reason for this is because the length of the loft in the Tarleton design wasn't the same as any conventional mattress. Since we built our tiny house on a foundation we extended the entire building by about six inches which gave us the perfect space for a high end futon mattress.

We bought the futon mattress at a local shop here in Asheville that worked with us to find what was really comfortable. It was pretty amazing to me how diverse futon mattresses are. The one Matt and I had in our first house out of college was cheap and uncomfortable but this mattress is exceptional. However, we did have to carry it up to the tiny house pretty much on our backs - not an easy feat. Now that its there it isn't going anywhere - that's for sure.
