I got the plans for this build from a fellow Lumberjock. I made a few small changes to his design, and started building the beds from the ground up. I laminated 3/4” pine boards for all the framing & box pieces & the tops are 1/2” sanded pine plywood. I beefed up the framing because I know my three boys will be body slamming each other on it in a few years. I’m pretty sure this bed could support an elephant! I chose this design because it fits nicely in a 12’ X 12’ bedroom, and it offers space below the middle bunk for storage. I also like how the bed is made in sections, which allows me to take it apart easily in case we decide to move it. It was fun building this from the ground up, and watch the project come together everyday. Now that its complete, it’s time to ice my lower back, open a beer and watch my three boys enjoy the new beds.
