I might be interested in the futon frame - but what does "working condition" mean?

What I mean by that is that it works - you can sit on it and it doesn't eat you or fall to bits - but I haven't examined it inch-by-inch yet, it's spent some time on the back porch and has received some moisture, so I can't say for sure it still opens into a bed, or that it's totally rust free, until I check it out more closely. What were you planning to use it for?

I can tell you it does the job as an outdoor couch but I'm hesitant to recommend it as a bed (my brother slept on it for six months when it was indoors, but then, he's nuts.) ;)

OK, I was planning to use it as a spare bed/sofa, but if it's spent time outside maybe not. Thanks anyway - and btw we've changed eurovision to Saturday, hope you can still make it.

I think you have the honor of being the only person to ever sleep on it, too!

you've seen my room... do you think the desk of awesome would fit in it?

shit. i just realised i have no way of moving it, unless it is indeed awesome and will collapse to excel size.

Actually, it does collapse! With the help of my trusty set of Allen keys, anyway. :)

The legs come off and the desk goes into two major pieces. I can't guarantee you'll get it all into a car (and if so, probably not all of it at once!) but you're welcome to rock up with a tape measure and be the judge. As for physically moving it to and from vehicles, Susie and I once got it up the stairs at Heidelberg... nearly killed ourselves doing it, mostly because we started giggling hysterically halfway through... :D

I know someone in the market for a QB mattress - will check with them tonight. Would also like a squiz at anything resembling bookshelves or bedroom furniture :)

Ack, sorry, Rose has already laid definite claim to it and is coming around on Friday to pickup and pay - my goodness, this is moving a lot faster than I expected! Bookshelves and cupboard both already sold too!
