Default Taking the leap

Wifey Nik and I just spent the last couple of weekends looking for our new place together and finally found it. We have all agreed that moving in together would be best if we moved into a new places instead of trying to move into each others space. With that being said one of the biggest issues is adjusting to our new sleeping arrangement. We all sleep in one bed. Cal king. and It isn't enough space for all of us. We all have different sleeping patterns. I can easily sleep anywhere but I do snore. Wifey needs a fan and Nik needs heat and she fidgets. Has anyone experienced this transition any tips or advice?

Advice? Ok you probably don't want this advice, but i'll let you have it for free and if you don't like it, you can have double your money back:


(((wait for it)))


Sleeping in the same bed with other people is over-rated.

What NK said, but an Eastern King is wider, just saying. There is always the option of joining a Double and a twin (two twins = Eastern king). Use 2-3 seperate sets of twin blankets.

You could get a couple of large futons and put them on the floor, or if you like being up off the floor, you can build a platform very inexpensively out of pallets and plywood.

We have friends that have two king sized beds with a bridge... apparently you can buy them to put between the mattresses to bridge between them. They have a whole room just for sleeping in, nothing else. They have another for clothes and other bedroom stuff. I don't know where you get a bridge (my word... just so you know) but maybe a search on line?

You might have to sew a couple large flat sheets together instead of using "fitted" bottom sheets to cover the bridge.

That sounds cool-let us know how it goes.

There was a time when I thought that it would be nice to all sleep together, at least sometimes.

But, as time has moved on I find that I really have very little desire to do that....

(of course we're not a triad either-I was just noting the change in myself)

Default Here we go!

Tomorrow I will start the process of making an interior doorway between Redpepper and PN's main level and my basement suite. Exciting times!
