It was a huge couch, two parts to a sectional sofa about 13' long when you put the sections side by side. It was deep, and the arms came up as high as the back. We paid $99 for it at a Rooms To Go Outlet store in Columbia SC and carried it back to Greer in a minivan. I built a middle thing out of plywood so we could put the sections in an L shape at some other houses we lived in. Eventually when I came down with a cold once around 2000, we discovered you could put the two sections together and it was about the size of a short double bed. Couchbed was born.

Couchbed became a source of comfort. You're sick? I'll make up couchbed. That job you liked is gone? Couchbed is still comfy. Let's cuddle up and watch a movie. I heard that one a lot.
When we got our house in the mountains, the couch moved in up there. We moved it to 3 other houses in Greenville first, and 1 house in Greenville after we cleared out the mountain house, and eventually up here to Raleigh. That's where eventually this giant old comfy sofa met its ultimate demise. The frame boards on the bottom of the couch were broken. Half of couchbed had to go to the dump. And it did just that in December. The other half made it up to the playroom so the kids can crush it and I can watch tv up there while they play.
Couchbed, you will be greatly missed. Kelley's dad had a couch and matching love seat, and Kelley's mom actually ended up with the couch a few years ago. She wanted to get rid of the couch at the same time he replaced the love seat with something else, so we ended up getting the matching set again. That meant the broken half had to go and the decent half had to go upstairs.
