I have a 12 wall beds that need to be built from a Wall Bed Australia DIY kit.

I am hoping to pay someone up to $500 in labour to build the first one so that we can build the remaining 11.

If you have built one or several in the past, this could be quite an easy $500,

We are hoping to construct our first one on tomorrow or Monday morning - in time to order the remaining beds before the Christmas break.

Should you want hourly paid work to assist / build the remaining 11 beds, we would be interested also.

Look forward to hearing from anyone interested who has experience in this field.



No offers were made on this task.
Hi Richard. I could do this on Tuesday between 10-2. I've built these before and can build all of them for you or happy to help with the installation. Do you have any of the free Murphy panels or just frames at this stage?
Please feel free to browse my profile and reviews for peace of mind,
Ps my rate for the initial bed would be atleast half of your posted amount
Hi Mikey,

Thanks for your reply and details.

Appreciate the reduced rate offer for the first bed also.

Our deadline is only Monday to allow time to order the remaining beds before Xmas close.

If you feel its should be an easy enough process to teach or even complete the beds, that gives me a a bit of confidence to order the remaining 11 with installing the first one.

This is what we have purchased from wall beds australia a diymech-product. Can't send link unfortunately - but feel free to go to their site and go to the DIY one.

Have you done one of these before?

We will need to measure and purchase the timber panels as its just the frames in the kit. Would this be an issue?

We are hoping to get all the first built with timber from bunnings and then put in an custom paneling order for the frames by mid week from our cabinetry company.

If all goes well on the first bed and you provide a rate/bed or hourly rate after that, I think we could easily keep you on the remaining beds. We have quite a bit of handyman work going at the moment as well leading up to Xmas, which you may want to get involved in.

Look forward to hearing back from you.


HI Mikey,

See attached the Instructions given in the pack.


Hi Mikey,

Just wondering if you saw my last two messages with the instructions provided?

have you cpmpleted a DIY wall bed? or the full flat pack ones?


I have completed Murphy beds in the past on a couple of projects I have done
Good to hear!

Was it the DIY type or a full kit?

We are having trouble with the fact its not a flat pack full kit, but one that only has the frame. See attached the instructions given for your reference.

Would love to hear your thoughts...


Id be happy to help you out but could only come Tuesday
