The general design is 2 main rectangles 3.6'x 4' divided into two squares by a horizontal piece. Each retangle is then joined by a diagonal piece on ether side. The unit should stand about 6' tall 4' wide and 2' deep when extended from the wall and then when not in use collapse against the wall to about 7' tall and about 1/2' deep. The goal is to have more usable space when the device is not needed but still keeping it convient, sturdy and reliable.
