I have no idea how much they cost. I haven't seen them at all. I just thought it would be a sweet idea since my room is on the tiny side of small, and I'm not the biggest fan of loft beds.

Where could I go to have something like this fabricated and how would I be sure it would handle its own weight + my own?

I'm not sure what they are called, but they are like chips. Made from rice, I believe. Puffed up from deep frying. They come in colours, like light green, pink, and white.

You find them in some Chinese dishes. They stick to your tongue.

Don't know how else you can describe them.

If you want them, uncooked, they usually come in a pink/red box, wrapped in clear plastic.

edit: whoa wtf, you can nuke these? Sweet, gotta give it a try.
You Say Wonton, I Say Kreplach: August 2010

edit 2: not the same....buuurn. Not as airy, dense and tastes kinda stale. To get the real flavour, you gotta fry em.

Oh gawd, you've got one of those?


I think Metropolis still has a stuffed animal store? Somewhere on the old side, not sure where though.

17 hours has them / or used to......


Olympic mascots and a few others. They had some that were 5 ft tall. Phone, in case they are all out. Remember, they are only open on weekends -- for 17 hours, LOLOLOLOLOL

Below is their website. I don't see the huge ass ones advertised anymore, but that doesn't mean they are out. They get new stock all the time.

There's lot of metal fabricators around the city.
Last time I got something small done was at Blair Machine.
Not the most professional looking joint, but he seems to do decent work.
The shop can make sure it'll support your weight, matress etc, they've already got a rough idea how much stuff can take, and they can always over engineer it.
The real question you have to figure out is where the joists in your ceiling are and if they can handle the non-distributed load. Let me put it this way, normally, your flooring is plywood, then hardwood, laminate or tiles. This would distribute out the weight of even a heavy fridge. Each of those 4 legs of a the fridge would usually be distributed out over a wider area to at least 2 joists. What a ceiling mounted frame like that would be doing is putting the weight on a single point on 1 joist.

Before you start any design work, you need to figure out your existing conditions. Be prepared to cut into your ceiling to get measurements of joist spacing and size. Hopefully they are deep enough to support to added weight.

You can buy them in Chinese supermarkets. You can even buy unfried ones and do it yourself. Also, leave the naming of Chinese foods to the Chinese, Russian
