Murphy bed (folding bed from wall) ideal for use in a shipping container home

In any home the one thing that takes up the most space without actually being functional most of the time in daylight hours has to be the bed which in a shipping container an area taken up by an area 4ft wide by 6ft long is a lot of space to waste just to lie down. At the same time sofa beds often don’t offer the same level of comfort of a normal bed so a compromise has to be made which is where the Murphy bed or folding bed comes in as it allows the unit to be put away when not in use.

Downside was when I seen how much people are charging for these units which is why I did a bit of research on getting the mechanism as well as plans on how to build a Murphy bed which is what I am sharing below as no doubt I know others will be interested for the same reason as me.
