Floating basement Wall murphy bed installation question

My basement walls are hung from the ceiling (Colorado requirement).

I want to install a murphy bed which sets on the floor but is screwed to the wall with 6 large screws.

Any ideas how to do this so those 6 large screws can slide up and down when the floor moves up and down?

THANKS!

Sounds like you would need to use t-track and t-bolts instead of screws... t-track is screwed to the wall framing vertically... then bolt to it with the t-bolts... loose enough for it to move up and down a little.
