Default Is there any architects that could help me with a really really really small project?

I want to build a custom bed frame, I have plenty of tools, saws etc. My dad is an electrician and he is good with things such as that and I know how to use tools. I am asking this because I want an elevated bed and was considering constructing a wooden one (metal would be very complicated). It has to be wide enough or a full size mattress. I want it to be about 3 feet high, I need storage space under it. I have thought of some plans but I do not know how to make it stable, where it will not shake and etc. I do not intend to use a box spring, i plan on buying a good mattress. so there can't be gaps where the mattress lays. my bed at college was wooden and it had boards on the side not allowing the mattress pushed to be against the wall, I need the mattress to be able to be pushed to the wall. There will be two people sleeping in this bed, that is why it needs to be against the wall because the bed at school sucked for whoever was sleeping on the wall side.
If anyone that has some type of skills in designing something of this I would greatly appreciate it. any questions please just ask and no flaming please.

What you'll really need is a good pipe layer.

oh man, some of these replies are funny. I built this bed a couple years ago, I wanted a floating look to the bed. Kinda just built it and figured along the way, hasn't failed me yet

I'd go to a local wood specialist store and dig through some books, there's ton's of plans, and some even have a cut list for you, there's even a wiki about it:
http://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Wooden-Bed-Frame
google comes up with a lot of results too

Make your bed out of PVC pipe. No messy tools to work with, just plug and play!
