Here is an idea that improves results and makes one-man operation easier, especially when it comes to positioning the mattress and box spring. Instead of “a-framing” the mattress, set it up on milk crates as shown in the picture. It is much easier when you are working by yourself, and it gets both pieces of bedding up off the floor.
The same is true for other furniture, clutter, and even your recirc fans. Anything that keeps air from freely circulating around an object, or the floor that it is setting on, can be improved by putting it on a crate. Crates can be had online or at some shipping or moving stores locally.
Thanks to Greg Osborne of Bug Bakers of Columbus OH for the idea.
