I measured my bed for the 75"x78" in the plan. I will check it again, but I did it twice last night. I suppose I need to do it 76"x80" regardless for when I get a new mattress. I suppose an inch on each side would allow for a lip, which could be a good option. As for the height, we did account for it. The bed is roughly 15" thick, so it would be a total of 30" high. My wife stood next to our bed and we measured where she wanted it and she said 30-34 would work... so that allows for the possibility of adding feat if I needed to.
