I hope this is ok to link to...if you scroll down on this blog post, I have pictures of the co-sleeper/sidecar attachment that my DH made!
Nothing, for right now. If I decide we want one, it would be super easy to add one on. But I figure the time between when the baby could maneuver itself down to there and roll off the bed and the when we can show him/her how to back off of the bed safely is a very short period. I'd rather have them roll off of it then try to climb over a rail and fall. The top of the mattress is only 24 inches from the ground, and it is carpeted with a nice pad underneath. Though I think once Squirt starts rolling around that much, I"ll put some pillows or blankets down there on the ground, too, just in case!
You wanted him to make ME a glider rocker, too??
DDCC to say...that is flippin' AWESOME!!! You are lucky to have such a handy hubby :D I'm gonna have to see if DH can manufacture something like that for the next baby. We have a used Arm's Reach Co-sleeper, but I would much prefer something that is level with our mattress. I hate the lip, and so rarely put Malachi in it.
