Jump ahead to another finished tier, nothing new here… Just the cycle. Was lucky to get some Expedit shelves in this time. Normally like using all mattresses and box springs for tying it all back, but I had to fill the gap on the left. It’s jutting out a bit which is something you want to avoid when you can, you want to build on a clean line each time.
Did another box spring, but notice I put it on the right this tier. It’s nice to stagger things… Like bricks in a house, kinda. If you had sheet glass, between the wall and the box spring would be ideal, cant twist or be hit by anything there.
Like Isaid about tying back with mats, here you go. That last tier could really use it. I made a base of boxes to get the mattress up high against those loose items that need it most.
This carpet came out and I realized it was too long to be stood up. Often I’ll choose a side to leave empty on top so i can lay a carpet in.. Cleared a couple feet up there to start with, and tied up the end temporarily until I can build up to meet it.
Another thing you can use to tie back, headboards. Notice how I’m not struggling with loads of useless odd items as my pack is winding down. Again, that’s the biggest mistake people will make. A pile of stuff at the end. Top right is a settee, top left a glider chair.’
The end, there is a sofa on the left and another hidden on the right. You want to stand those tall if you’re trying to maximize your space. Stand it up, see if it has what I usually call “influence”. If its leaning make a judgment call and have it lean towards the wall or your previous tier. Push the very bottom tight so its fully upright. Its never a bad idea to remove the feet from your sofa. Strapped in a heavy dining table and this baby is done. Client didn’t think it’d fit in the truck. Lots of room to spare. Hope this was helpful in some way. /u/Nickthegreekthemover
